Mysterious Sea Creatures: Amazingly Rare 15-Foot Saber-Toothed Whale Washes up in California

Two days ago, californians found a giant oarfish on a beach. Now A incredible saber-toothed Whale has washed up in California. But why do these mysterious sea creatures strand?

For the second time this week, Southern California has seen a rare sea creature washed ashore, far from home waters. This time, it’s a saber-toothed whale, better known to live in deep Alaskan waters than in the warm surf of tourist-choked Venice Beach in Los Angeles where it stranded Wednesday, October 16, 2013.

In an extraordinary way even for scientists, the carcass of the nearly 15-foot and 2,000-pound whale was intact — except for a couple of fresh bite marks from sharks. The whale, a female, apparently was barely alive when it came ashore — a highly unusual sight because beached whales are often badly decomposed or badly eaten by marine life.

Cause of death

Are their deaths freak events prompted by global warming?

I would believe it’s just a coincidence. But who knows! It’s too early to tell. If we were to see a whole bunch of these animal strandings, that would give more evidence of something going on. (SOURCE)
