Poster Handle Texas Twister
Post Content
The sei whale, Balaenoptera borealis, is a baleen whale, the third-largest rorqual after the blue whale and the fin whale .[9] It inhabits most oceans and adjoining seas, and prefers deep offshore waters.[10] It avoids polar and tropical waters and semi-enclosed bodies of water. The sei whale migrates annually from cool and subpolar waters in summer to winter in temperate and subtropical waters.[11]

A large creature made a rare, and ultimately sad, visit to Galveston Island Tuesday morning.

A 40-foot whale that beached itself in the surf off the West End died about five hours after it was reported to wildlife rescuers

The whale’s species was identified as a Sei Whale, which is in the Blue Whale family. It was 45 feet long and was stranded about 30 yards offshore near the Terramar subdivision.


So sad..

Ive never heard of this happening in galveston.
