When a beached whale washes up on a beach, it's never a good thing, but it gives people a chance to see them closely.
A beached whale was found on Perran Beach at Perranporth Cornwall in the United Kingdom, and this guy got up close and personal with it.
Watch as a man films a close-up of this beach whale, young female measuring about 40ft long.
According to the Youtube user, this beached whale was a young female who for one reason or another washed up on the beach.
Can you believe the size of that beached whale? It really puts it into perspective to see a whale on the beach verse in the water. They are very large animals.
Luckily for the beach goers this whale hadn't been there too long. In most cases a beached whale explodes due to the build up of decaying gases in its body. If you see a whale on the beach approach it with caution, unless you like being covered in whale guts.
