Blue whale washes ashore:

The Washington Post Sunday - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

The body of a 79-foot blue whale has washed ashore in Cal­i­for­nia’s Marin County, and ex­perts are try­ing to de­ter­mine why it died. The whale was dis­cov­ered off Agate Beach in Boli­nas on Thurs­day. Marine Mam­mal Cen­ter sci­en­tists said she was a sub-adult. They col­lected skin and blub­ber sam­ples and planned a necropsy for Satur­day. Blue whales are en­dan­gered.
