Come One, Come All: Dead Whale Carcass Becomes Scavanger Buffet

Filmed on the Alaskan coast, this video shows what a dead whale carcass can mean for hungry animals.

Although the plankton is fruitful in shallow waters, whales can sometimes get beached when the tide is out.

Check out this clip and see how this dead whale feeds several hungry creatures.

The black bear, bald eagle, and the wolves were just a few of the documented animals to arrive at the dead whale carcass for a free meal. According to the narrator, this took months for all the meat to be eaten of this beached whale.

Did you see the wolves rolling on the dead whale carcass? They wanted nothing more than to eat the rotting meat and acquire the scent of a dead whale.

Now that you’ve seen what can happen to a dead whale, next time you see one be on the lookout for scavengers. A dead whale carcass like this one can attract all kinds of hungry creatures.
