This sperm whale from the Faroe Islands exploded at the worst time possible.
This whale had been dead for some time and the decomposing gasses in its body built up as it continued to rot from the inside out.
So here’s the story: A sperm whale washed up on a beach in the Faroe Islands, which is about halfway between Norway and Iceland. The whale is believed to have died of natural causes after being stranded with two other whales. After being left for a couple days, its intestines began to ferment and rot, and when this brave soul tried to open its stomach, a large gas pocket erupted and led to the GIF above, which is probably best not scratched and sniffed.
