Whale lived with a bomb in it for 100 years.

June 14, 2007

What an amazing fact it is. A whale lived for 100 years with a bomb in it. Yes Scientists have found a weapon fragment from an aged whale which would have been so young at the time of the American Civil War and it suggests that weapon fragment found in giant belonged to American Civil war Era. I was wondering about the life expectancy of a Whale and Scientists Say it is rare to find a a whale over 100 years old but also can find some which may reach 200.

The bowhead whale was killed by Indigenous hunters of Alaska as part of their subsistence quota.
