Fishermen Noticed A Large, Smelly Ball In The Ocean That Turned Out To Be A Dead Whale
It’s tempting to think there’s nothing new under the sun, but it only takes one incredible discovery to remind you that our world is full of mysteries.
Whether it’s an exciting new species or unseen evidence of one that’s long gone, we as humans truly never know what we’re going to come across.
While this is potentially true no matter where in the world you find yourself, it’s especially true in the world’s great oceans. After all, there aren’t many of us hanging around in open water where the deeper down you go, the weirder things tend to get.
Indeed, even the most seasoned marine biologist can be mystified by what the ocean spits out. A research vessel found a purple blob off the coast of California that scientists inside can’t quite make heads or tails of. Today, however, we’re going to look at the other side of the world where a much bigger blob made a much less pleasant impression.
COMMENT and tell us what bizarre things you’ve found in your travels.

They pushed off the Western Australian coast and everything seemed normal.
