    Abstract

    It was reported in the morning newspapers of 9th October, 1965 that a whale had been washed ashore off" Nepean Sea Road on the Bombay coast. Immediately the authors made a visit to the place and the following observations were recorded. Local inquiries showed that the drifting carcass of the whale was first sighted through binoculars the previous day by some residents of the locality. It appeared like an inverted dug-out canoe, being tossed up and down by the waves. The carcass was washed ashore on the rocky coast off" Nepean Sea Road, about four hours after it was first sighted.
