A rare whale that has a dolphin-shaped head and saber-like teeth has been found dead on Los Angeles' Venice Beach, even though it prefers frigid subarctic waters.
The roughly 15-foot-long female Stejneger's beaked whale washed ashore Tuesday night, the Los Angeles Times reported. A truck hauled away the mammal, which was being examined at the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum to determine how it died.
The Stejneger's beaked whale is rarely seen in the wild. The species typically dives deep in subarctic waters to feed on squid and small fish. It is believed to migrate as far south as Northern California, and how the whale ended up so far south will probably remain a mystery.

Nowhere near as rare as the saber-toothed pug.
“A truck hauled away the mammal...”
Trucks have the ability to up and haul mammals away? What a revelation!
I happen to be surfing the news this morning and CNN had this story.
They blamed it on...hold your breath... GLOBAL WARMING.
its simple enough
the whale was trying to sign up for obamacare

Your perspectives are always intriguing!
Could have been something the fishing fleet accidentally brought home with them that washed up the coast from where it got tossed overboard around San Pedro. The exam results will be interesting.
So it’s a mystery how it wound up so far south?? I suppose it could have swum...or it could have swam....or it could have swimmed...Yes...BIG mystery!!
a cold-water species so far from its habitat might be evidence of global cooling.
She does have nice teeth. Is this a gay test?
I felt so sorry for the poor thing.
