PHUKET:-- Officers from the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) are hoping to determine what killed an infant dwarf fin whale – also called an Omura’s whale – whose body was found washed ashore just north of Koh Lanta yesterday (Jan 6).


Local fisherman Sakda Thaweemuang reported finding the whale’s carcass washed ashore at Thung Talay Beach, in Moo 3, Tambon Koh Klang, on the mainland just north of Koh Lanta, reported the DMCR.


The whale measured 3.6 metres long. It had scratches on its body and its lower jaw was broken, the officers noted.
