Whales Really Like Their Sweatpants

Grey Whale

Grey Whale

According to a Fox News story, a dead gray whale, which recently washed ashore, was examined by biologists. One thing in particular they wanted to examine was the whale’s gut content, or what it had been eating prior to death. Normally, these whales eat algae, but the biologists discovered quite a bit of garbage in the whale, including a pair of sweatpants and even a golf ball, among other things of course. A few other items included plastic bags, small towels, duct tape and surgical gloves.
