要旨(デタラメ)


・海岸線(the banks of the Humber estuary at Skeffling, east Yorkshire)から 800m も離れた野原で、体長 10m の若いメスのイワシクジラの死骸が発見された。

・偶然、見つけた記事。1年以上昔の事件だが、珍しいので記録。

・どうやって 800m も移動したのかについてはソース記事には言及がない。

・動画も見つけた。動画だと海岸線が遠くに見えている。

はじめに


・最近、同様の事件が起きたのでそれを追加。

・海岸線から 15m ほど離れた森の中にクジラの死骸が見つかったという事件。クジラの体重は 10t ほど。

・専門家の意見では、まだ幼いクジラなので群れからはぐれ、波に乗って打ち上げられたのではないかと。

There is one clue that may help explain things. Judging by the size of the carcass, the biologists think the whale is probably a calf, no more than a year old and half the size of an adult.

This could potentially explain why this infant is so far away from its summer habitat. The biologists suspect that the juvenile whale somehow lost its mother during migration, and that's why it was left behind in the Amazon Basin.

All by itself with little life experience, scientists think the baby whale was probably dumped by high waves onto the shore, ultimately becoming entangled in the mangroves, unable to escape.

Another theory is that the calf died from ingesting plastic waste and its dead body was washed ashore by stormy seas.

Humpback whale washes up in the Amazon

A dead humpback whale believed to be a 12-month-old calf has unexpectedly washed up on Marajo Island.
The whale, which was discovered after scavenging birds were spotted flocking around its remains, could very well be the first humpback ever found washed up in the Amazon region.

It was found in the undergrowth approximately 15 meters from the shoreline.

According to the non-profit Bicho D'agua Institute, the unfortunate seaborne mammal was likely already dead long before it arrived on the island.

"We're still not sure how it landed here, but we're guessing that the creature was floating close to the shore and the tide, which has been pretty considerable over the past few days, picked it up and threw it inland, into the mangrove," said marine expert Renata Emin.

"Along with this astonishing feat, we are baffled as to what a humpback whale is doing on the north coast of Brazil during February because this is a very unusual occurrence."

Researchers have since taken samples from the whale in an effort to determine how it died.

・たぶん、海から 800m も離れた場所で見つかったクジラ(最初のケース)も嵐などによる大波に乗せられて打ち上げられたのだろう。
