  •  Another weird deep sea creature washes ashore (4+ / 0-)

    in So CA.  Second one this week.  Climate change?

    "A rare whale that has a dolphin-shaped head and saber-like teeth has been found dead on Los Angeles' Venice Beach, even though it prefers frigid subarctic waters.

    The roughly 15-foot-long female Stejneger's beaked whale washed ashore Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Times reported (http://lat.ms/... ). A truck hauled away the mammal, which was being examined at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum to determine how it died.

    The Stejneger's beaked whale is rarely seen in the wild. The species typically dives deep in subarctic waters to feed on squid and small fish. It is believed to migrate as far south as Northern California, and how the whale ended up so far south will probably remain a mystery."
