Sperm Whale Carcass Explodes All Over Marine Biologist

You might hurl watching this sperm whale explode (but not as much as the whale did).

According to the YouTuber who posted this fun and educational video, this is the case of a sperm whale that washed up dead somewhere near the Faroe Islands.

When a marine biologist attempted to perform an autopsy on the deceased whale, the buildup of methane gas inside caused an absolute explosion of blood and guts.

Warning: no-brainer, this is pretty gross.

Well, that was disgusting.

Since the carcass had been sitting for some two days by the time the biologist was ready to examine it, normal and natural processes of decomposition had been taking place.

Once the researcher punctured the whale enough to release the methane...well, you saw what happened.
