A Sabre-Toothed Whale This Time?

Last week, a Giant Oarfish was found in California, USA. This time, a Sabre-Toothed Whale (Mesoplodon stejnegeri) beached in Venice Beach. Citizens of Venice Beach saw this extremely rare whale species on Tuesday night. Also called the Stejneger’s Beaked Whale, this species normally lives in the Bering Sea.

Heal the Bay, a non-profit environment organization wrote on their FaceBook page:

The Stejneger’s Beaked Whale is a Northern species that frequents our coast but is predominantly found in the waters of Alaska. It is VERY rare and almost never seen alive.

The dots on the Sabre-Toothed Whale is thought to be the shark bites. This second sea giant really surprised the citizens living in California.
