During the first weekend in October 2010, an 85-foot blue whale washed up on the shore of Bean Hollow State Beach in Pescadero, California. Blue whales are known to be the largest species living on earth.
On October 7, scientists announced that the cause of the whale’s death was due to the blunt force from a collision with a passing ship. The whale was pregnant at the time, and her fetus washed up close by.
