Beach Butchery: Sperm Whale Disposal

The squeamish should look away now. A team from the Australian Museum was recruited to dispose of a dead Sperm Whale.  Dismembered into more manageable pieces, the carcass was then buried on site. The ocre sand and early decomposition makes the beast look more like a giant strawberry dainish than rotting marine megafauna. Images Courtesy of  Finton Mahoney.
