A dead whale washed up on shore early yesterday afternoon just south of Azul Resort. According to reports, the whale was seen washing up from early in the day. Azul staff drove their skiff over to identify what they believed was a manatee or a dolphin only to find out it was a dead whale. Hol Chan and Green Reef staff were called on scene to identify and remove the carcass but as of press time no one had showed up.

I think the one I photographed is a Pygmy Sperm Whale it on the shallows by the beach 200 yards South of Costa Maya.

Something is making this happen. Are they being inspected for signs of disease etc?
