Children's whale was probably lost in the sea and died of hunger or other unknown cause, according to a non-profit research group Bicho D & # 39; agua.
The tides poured the whale's body on the beach at Araruna Beach in the town of Soure, says oceanographer Bicho d'Agua Maura Sousa. It is located on the island of Marayo, which is located at the mouth of the Amazon River.
"In this season, the wave usually rises twice a day to almost 4 meters (13 feet) and floods the mangrove forest, yielding a lot
" This explains why the overheated frame, due to expansion gases, was dragged into the mangrove forest, "- she said 1

The cat probably died after four and a half days before the fishermen found it in the mangroves in the morning, she added. Fishermen informed the research group about the carcass of the whale, which was about 50 meters from the coast.
Whales, similar to this, are common in the South Atlantic, but usually not at this time, said Sousa. Whales that arrive on the coast of Brazil tend to spend their winters in Antarctica.
This may be a North Atlantic whale, she added. Researchers perform DNA tests to determine where the hunchback is coming from.
Pathological Laboratory of the Federal University of the Pair performs autopsy – autopsy on the animal. The results available in about 20 days will give researchers a better idea of the cause of whale death.
