The Mysterious Blue Whales Deaths

Hosted by

Blue whales can grow to more than one-hundred feet and weigh two-hundred tons, making them larger than any dinosaur discovered. But the largest animals ever to live are now an endangered species. In the past few weeks, three blue whales have turned up dead in the Santa Barbara Channel, and nobody knows how they became so disoriented that they collided with ships.
