The massive carcass of a Bryde’s whale was found on the shore of Sirri Island in the Persian Gulf last week and was buried after coordination with the island’s environmental authorities.

The whale weighed 35 tons and was 14 meters in length, the news portal of Hormozgan’s office of the Department of Environment reported. Due to the poor status of the carcass, the authorities could not identify the cause of the sea mammal’s death.

This is not the first time a giant carcass of this species was found on the shores and islands of the Persian Gulf. In the past seven months alone, four carcasses of Bryde’s whales have been found. The latest one was spotted in August this year near Bandar Lengeh. Authorities announced the cause of death to be collision with a ship.

Bryde’s whales can be found in the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic oceans, but they are most commonly found in tropical and subtropical regions. Due to their warm water preference, they have been observed migrating toward the equator in winter.
