First massive blue whale in 30 years washes up dead on New Zealand beach

May 2, 2011New Zealand – Wainui Beach in South Taranaki was the final destination for huge sea monsters as two giant whales washed ashore in the past three days. Residents of Waitotara were surprised to discover what is believed to be a dead 22.3m-long pygmy blue whale washed up on the beach, about 1.5km south of the river mouth, sometime on late Friday night or early Saturday morning. A rare species, a Wanganui Department of Conservation spokesman said if this was a pygmy blue whale it is the only one of its kind to have washed up on this coastline for at least 30 years. Then overnight Sunday a large sperm whale stranded itself on Wainui Beach. Unable to re-float the large mammal, DOC staff had to put the sperm whale down. –Stuff.NZ

    Things just keep getting more concerning don’t they Alvin. This seems more significant than the smaller sea creatures that have washed up.

    It always makes me think of the sign of Jonah Jesus talked about in the end times even though I really thought of the sign of Jonah May 2010 when Israel saw I believe a grey whale off it’s coast which one article said they haven’t been spotted since the 1700s and of course it’s spotted off the coast of Israel which is always significant

    God Bless
