It was just another usual day and a usual fishing trip when Mark Watkins, an Australian fisherman stumbled upon this thing.
His heart started pounding and his mind began racing, trying to figure out what the hell this thing was.
“It might be a boat, or a hot air balloon or worse an alien,” were the initial thoughts cropping up inside the fisherman’s mind.
But one thing was certain. Never in his 20 years of fishing out in the sea, he has come across something like this.
But the man kept his cool and managed to rise above the fear and started to approach the object.
There they realized that it wasn’t a alien or a balloon, it just couldn’t be. ” It had to be a dead whale because of the foul smell in the air, ” the 36 year old has said.
And upon taking a close look, it was confirmed that it was in fact the corpse of a dead whale.
It turns out that the process was not a weird phenomenon or anything, but was a view of nature taking it’s course.
The bloated appearance of the whale was due to the gases which were trapped inside it’s stomach. The sun’s heat in turn caused the body’s skin and vessels to swell up, hence the bloated whale.
Upon their way back, Mark and his dad noticed that the corpse had deflated due to sharks who had attacked the body.
Our deepest apologies to alien life enthusiasts who were hoping to get a glimpse of extra territorials visiting our planet.
