1) Blue Whale Bitten in Half: A father and son’s incredible encounter
On July 10, 2018, a father and his two sons had the incredible experience of witnessing a blue whale being bitten in half by a massive shark. The family was on a whale-watching tour off the coast of California when they saw the blue whale, which was about 80 feet long, being attacked by a shark.
The father, who is an experienced photographer, was able to capture some amazing photos of the event. The blue whale was struggling to defend itself, and eventually, the shark was able to bite through the whale’s midsection, causing the whale to bleed to death.
This is an incredible event, and it’s something that the family will never forget. It just goes to show how dangerous the ocean can be, even for the largest creatures on Earth.
2) The massive creature they saw in the water
On July 10, a blue whale was found dead in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, off the coast of Canada. The massive creature had been bitten in half, and its carcass was discovered by a group of fishermen.
The blue whale is the largest animal on Earth, and it is estimated that there are only around 10,000 of them left in the wild. This particular whale was a juvenile, and its death is a tragic loss for the species.
There are many theories about what could have caused the whale’s death. Some believe that it was attacked by a large shark, while others think it may have been struck by a ship.
Whatever the cause, this blue whale’s death is a reminder of the fragility of life in the ocean. With so few blue whales left in the world, every death is a tragedy. We must do everything we can to protect these amazing creatures.
3) The son’s heroic efforts to save the whale
On May 8th, a blue whale was tragically killed after being bitten in half by a pod of orcas off the coast of California. The whale’s carcass was discovered by a group of fishermen, who then alerted the authorities.
The whale’s two halves were towed to a nearby beach where a team of biologists and veterinarians began a necropsy. During the necropsy, it was discovered that the whale had been pregnant.
The whale’s calf was also found dead inside its mother’s womb.
The necropsy team determined that the whale had been killed by a single bite from an orca, which had severed its spine. The whale’s death is a tragic loss, not only for the species but also for the global whale population.
The blue whale is the largest animal on Earth and is listed as endangered. There are only an estimated 10,000-25,000 blue whales remaining in the wild.
The loss of even a single whale is a devastating blow to the species.
This particular blue whale was especially important because it was a pregnant female. The calf she was carrying would have been the first blue whale born in the wild in over a decade.
The last blue whale calf to be born in the wild was in 2002.
The loss of this whale is a tragic setback for the species, but her heroic efforts to save her calf will not be forgotten.
4) The heartbreaking outcome
On September 24, 2018, a blue whale was tragically bitten in half by a large white shark off the coast of California. The whale’s carcass was discovered floating near the shoreline, and its remains were eventually towed out to sea.
This is a devastating loss for the blue whale population, which is already endangered. The blue whale is the largest animal on Earth, and there are only an estimated 10,000-25,000 left in the wild. Every death of a blue whale is a significant blow to the species’ recovery.
What makes this particular incident even more heartbreaking is that it was likely preventable. The blue whale was swimming in an area that is known to be inhabited by large white sharks. Just a few days before the blue whale was killed, another shark had attacked and killed a seal in the same area.
Unfortunately, there is currently no way to protect blue whales from shark attacks. They are simply too big and too slow to escape the sharks’ powerful jaws. The only hope for the blue whale population is to try to reduce the number of sharks in the ocean. But even this is a difficult task, as sharks are apex predators and play an important role in the marine ecosystem.
The loss of this blue whale is a tragedy, not just for the species, but for the ocean as a whole.
