Exploding Whale

Watch this freaky video of a dead sperm whale exploding when a biologist cuts open its carcass.

The 45ft sperm whale had washed up dead on a beach in the Faroe Islands. The whale had been there two days when the biologist tried to cut it.

As soon as Marine biologist Bjarni Mikkelsen began working, the gas trapped inside the whale exploded, spewing out tons of organs and guts that narrowly missed him.

“The animal was more than two days old when we took it so we knew there would be some pressure on the inside, but nothing like what happened.” says Mikkelson.
