A Really Old Whale

This summer an old fin whale was found dead along the Norwegian coast.  Original estimates of this animal’s age were proven to be far too low, once a bit of ‘digging’ was done to ascertain the actual age.   A comment in the article about its possible physical ailments adds credence to the postulation that we share a strong evolutionary and spiritual connection to whales.

Fin whales are the second largest species of whale on the planet.  They are often seen off the Massachusetts coast during the whale watch season.
