It's a landmass higher than sea level surrounded by water. But never mind that.

Whale fat blobs are pretty common in photos of "sea monsters".

That's probably what this is … unless it suddenly starts devouring researchers and spectators. Then it might be something else. :)

It's a Blue Whale. not even hard to ID anyone who has read a book on whaling history with photos of dead whales and their bones could have ID this whale in seconds, let alone seen a photo of a live one.

I don't doubt it but I really don't see the pic as the live one and the pic of the dead one to be an easy match


I mean, looking at the dead pic, what am I seeing that looks like the live one? What part is sticking out front that looks sort of rectangular with a domed top? The motor?

It was a heavily decomposed whale carcass.
