Scientists were shocked when they found a carcass of a humpback whale, which looks as if it only recently died, in the rain forest in South America. The 36-foot beast, which appears as if it has no wounds or significant injuries on initial inspections, was only discovered when a flock of vultures were seen swooping above it. A team of biologists from Brazilian institute Bicho D’agua raced to see what was happening only to find the creature stranded in the middle of the jungle.[br][br][br][br]Darlene Silva, Department of Health, Sanitation and Environment (Semma), told Journal O Liberal: “We only found the whale because of the presence of scavenging birds of prey.[br][br]“The vultures were spotted circling above the carcass which was found hidden in the bush some distance from the sea.”[br][br]What makes the find even more baffling is during winter the Amazonian rivers flood with freshwater – and whales can only survive in salt water.[br]However, the scientists believe the giant mammal, which is thought to be an infant and roughly only one year old, got stranded from its pod and ended up in the freshwater.[br][br][br][br]umpback Whale found in the middle of the AMAZON in mystery discovery (Image: Bicho D'água • FACEBOOK)[br]There, it struggled to survive and ended up on the shore, around 15 metres away from the sea, after a huge wave carried it in land.[br][br]Renata Emin, Bicho D’agua's president and marine specialist said: “We're still not sure how it landed here, but we're guessing that the creature was floating close to the shore and the tide, which has been pretty considerable over the past few days, picked it up and threw it inland, into the mangrove.[br][br]“Along with this astonishing feat, we are baffled as to what a humpback whale is doing on the north coast of Brazil during February because this is a very unusual occurrence.”[br][br]Humpaback whales are only usually seen as far as the northern Brazilian state of Bahia from August to November.[br][br][br][br][br]The humpback whale is is 36 feet long (Image: Bicho D'água • FACEBOOK)[br][br][br][br]Researchers inspecting the whale (Image: Bicho D'água • FACEBOOK)[br]They usually live much closer to Antarctica – their feeding ground.[br][br]Ms Emin continued: “Humpback whales don't usually travel to the north. We have a record of one appearing in the area three years ago, but it's rare.[br][br]“We believe this is a calf which may have been travelling with its mother and probably got lost or separated during the migratory cycle between the two continents.”
