Baby Whale Washes Ashore

A baby whale washed ashore this afternoon just a few feet from Azul Resort in north Ambergris Caye. Rumors about the baby whale spread like wild fire and our reporters rushed to the scene at about 2:15p.m. We are sad to report that when we got to the site we discovered that the whale was already dead. The baby whale, (species unknown) measured about seven feet and we are estimating its weight to be about 500lbs. We were told that people had spotted a whale swimming around the same area this morning, and we assume that the baby got separated and lost from its mother. More information as it becomes available to us.

Thanks to Searious Adventures for providing Ambergris Today with transportation to the site.
