A skinless dead whale has washed ashore at Gholarchar Point at the junction of Naf River and Shah Parir Dwip in Teknaf, Cox’s Bazar on Monday afternoon. However, no signs of injuries were found. The dead whale was found floating.
Moazzem Hossain, the founder of Save the Nature of Bangladesh said, “Rare scenes are seen on the beach one after another. First dolphin and then a whale. However, it is very sad that a whale died on Teknaf beach on Monday.”
It was lying in the dunes of Gholarchar Point, said local resident Jasim Mahmud, mentioning that “it was six feet long.” He said the fish might die after being trapped in the sand while entering the Naf River. “But this is not the whale that was seen at Paschimpara beach in Shah Parir Dwip on Saturday. That whale was bigger than that,” he added.
A rare species of whale was spotted at Paschimpara beach in Shah Parir Dwip on Saturday. The baby whale was injured in the block and bled. Later, when it was repeatedly blocked by tidal waves, local youths and fishermen helped it return to the sea.
