Following continued news of disturbing sea life occurrences off the West Coast, scientists in Mexico’s Scammon’s Lagoon, also known as Laguna Ojo de Liebre, have discovered what appears to be the first ever documented case of conjoined gray whale calves.
Discovered last Sunday, the calves, which did not survive, measured in just under seven feet long, much smaller than the average newborn length of 12 to 16 feet.
“Unfortunately the specimen died, his survival was difficult,” a translated comment from the Guerrero Negro Verde Facebook page reads.
Shockingly underdeveloped, American Cetacean Society researcher Alisa Schulman-Janiger believes the calves were the result of a miscarriage. Later collecting the carcass for further analysis, scientists made no comments regarding a possible cause.
While conjoined twins have been found in several other whale species, a search of the database at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County produced no records of conjoined gray whales.
Although no information has yet been released, concerns over the ongoing Fukushima disaster has many asking questions, especially in light of rare animal deaths spreading along the West Coast.
Incidences such as the ongoing “melting sea star” epidemic, which has been seen off the coast off California, Oregon, Washington and Canada, has yet to be explained as sea stars are found literally disintegrating.
Even with Japanese scientists finding “high” Cesium levels in plankton throughout the Pacific as far back as May 2013, governments continue to call the amounts safe.
A recent study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences found that the number of dead sea creatures covering the floor of the Pacific is higher than it has ever been since monitoring began 24 years ago. Despite attempts by some to “debunk” the study and blame the occurrence on “global warming,” a closer lookat the study clearly points to Fukushima as the most likely factor.
Following the Department of Health and Human Services’ purchase of 14 million doses of potassium iodide last week, many believe the federal government has begun preparing as the situation in Japan worsens.
Admittedly high radiation levels recently found on a California beach have also brought national attention to the subject, with major news outlets such as the Drudge report linking to reports of the incident.
While the verdict is still out on the once in a lifetime whale discovery, the continued growth of rare occurrences has only peaked the public’s interest.

Here ya`ll go now!! – If my dog accidently gets out and chases the neighbors cattle and they run the fence and kill themselve because of my dog chaseing them cattle then guess what , I get sued, and if somebody gets injured or dies I get thrown in jail or prison as well. Tell me now what is the difference between my dog chasing cattle resulting in property damage and the death of the neighbors cattle and the BP oil spill killing off the sea life and fukushima killing off animal life and eventually human life as well???? then why isn`t anybody in jail for life at the very least from BP of fukushima??? or is it we the people that has to take out vigilante justice? Has any body gone to jail for the obscean crimes these two companies commited? Hell by my books these multi billion dollar businesses didn`t even get a slap on the wrists. They have to be held accountable. Hell if my dog was responsible for creating a accident resulting in death man o man would I go to jail for a long long time if I would even stand a chance of getting out again!!!
well seeing this abomination ,most likely done by radiation from you know where..but of course mother nature never would let this happen..no freakin way.so it bought back the memory of horror..the horror few men have seen. no not dick cheney naked..when I was 7 or 8 years old I went with my father too his union credit hall.. it was near cooper union ,opposite the black square. inside were blown pics of the Hiroshima children born after the bombing…I asked my dad if they were animals in the large beakers..no he said..that were the children unborn…monsters..2 heads..three arms.
