Humpback whales enter crocodile river ‘in Australian first’ – BBC News

Australian officials say they will try to guide a humpback whale out of a crocodile-infested river in the Northern Territory after it got lost and ended up 30km (18.5 miles) inland. The whale and others were on an annual sea migration when some of them “took a wrong turn”, experts believe. Two whales were later able to swim out of the river, but at least one remains. It’s the first known instance of a whale being found in crocodile territory so far inland in Australia. Given its estimated 16m (52 ft) length, the humpback is considered unlikely to be disturbed by crocodiles. But that risk could escalate if the whale were to become stranded in the shallow waters, officials said on Monday. #BBCOS #BBCOutsideSource Please subscribe HERE

    IMAO, the reason why this whale had swam until this area is because of the change of the sea tidal and the temperature, habitats

    Do you think you are born again just because you go to a church? Not all churches declare the Truth. On the contrary, your church could be a completely worldly church. For your own soul, you must come out of the churches that use the Bible but do not declare the Truth and speak lies differing from the bible. Hear what the Spirit of Truth says to the churches and receive the eternal gospel!

  5. animals understand that something is wrong, and it often shows in their errant behavior. namely, what's wrong is the way that humans are systematically destroying this planet, because business must go on.

  6. They are moving away for a reason. They haven't lost their biological imperative, like humans, who are disconnected from reality and exist in an emotionally constructed universe. Brace yourselves. It's a warning of what's to come.
