When Mark Watkins headed out for a fishing trip off the coast of Western Australia, he’d hoped to come home with dinner. Instead, he came home with one heck of a story.
That’s because, as he and his father drove their boat through the choppy morning waves, they happened upon an amazingly bizarre sight. At first they thought it was a boat, then, a hot air balloon. The truth, however, was even crazier.

When they first spotted it floating above the waves, Mark Watkins and his father thought it was an overturned boat. As they got closer they thought perhaps it was a hot air balloon. Then they realized the truth.

In reality, it was an enormous — and very dead — humpback whale, swollen from gas.
In all his years on the sea, Mark had never seen anything like it!

As Mark and his father headed back to shore, they thought it looked like the whale had lost a few chunks thanks to some hungry sharks, and subsequently deflated. Not too often do you get to see something as strange as this!
