Dead whale washes ashore on Long Beach Peninsula (Washington state, USA)

where-whale-foundApril 10th, 2014 (Mark Graves). A dead whale, about 25 feet long, which may suggest it was young, has washed ashore on the Long Beach Peninsula. The baleen whale, which has a filter-feeder system inside its mouth, lies about 9 miles north of Illwaco, Wash. What type of whale (possibly a gray whale) and how it died is currently unknown.

Ed Sibylline : it’s a Gray whale.
