Whale explodes during dissection
A marine biologist may have got more than he bargained for whilst dissecting a dead sperm whale.
The sperm whale, which died of natural causes, washed up on the Faroe Islands two days before the dissection started.
A build-up of methane gas caused an explosion and may have startled the marine biologist a bit.
A Faroese television show shot and broadcast the unfortunate explosion, which has since become a viral hit online, amassing millions of views on YouTube.
