A large sperm whale was found dead near the shoreline in the fishing town of Kinoguitan in Misamis Oriental.

As shown above (photo by Testigo Northern Mindanao), curious residents look on the large creature whose kind has been regularly spotted in the waters between Camiguin and Bohol. Kinoguitan Mayor Junjun Lagbas was quoted in a radio interview this morning that the said whale had the size of a mini-bus.



Sperm whales are locally called “balyena” and made famous by Herman Melville’s classic novel Moby Dick.
