Whales: Surprise, the world's largest mammals produce the world's largest turds

Wired Science has a revealing post about a particularly notable plume of whale poop spotted by a scientist off the Southern California coast. From giant animals come giant poo. Marine biologists and oceanographers get to study stuff like this with their serious-face on.


  1. Yay! Finally an answer to “What does whale poop look like?” from the book “Everyone Poops”

  2. When I was in basic training many years ago, the drill sargent would lambaste us with: “You people are lower than whale shit. And, that’s on the bottom of the ocean.”

  3. Wait a moment… Didn’t Sykes in Shark Tale claim that whale poo is at the bottom of the ocean? On the other hand, I suppose cartoons aren’t the best place to learn marine biology.
