If you’ve never witnessed whales exploding first-hand consider yourself lucky, as they make for dirty and stinky messes.
This video is a compilation of beached whales exploding on various beaches throughout the world. Put on a rain coat and enjoy.
The first whale in this video was found on a Denmark beach, and was of the Sperm variety. They kept the skeleton for a local museum. The whale from the second video beached itself in Taiwan, and it took a whole crew of men to take care of it.
The last part of the video is arguably the best example of an exploding whale and it happened in Oregon. Crews had to use dynamite to blow up the carcass as it would not explode naturally. These are prime examples of how exploding whales can literally impact your life.
