More death on the beach

A harbour porpoise, washed up yesterday morning.
Just over a metre in length. The damage has been done by birds eating the blubber -crows & gulls.

This shows the teeth. The white mark on the top of the snout is where birds have attacked the area around the blow-hole. Porpoise need to surface for air, like other cetaceans.
See for more information.
