Interesting Animals # 62 – Whales

According to Richard Black of the BBC, in the 17th Century Japanese whalers buried the foetuses of the pregnant whales they caught in a special graveyard facing out to sea.

(In Nagato, Japan, they gave the whales killed Buddhist names. I just wonder how many of the species interred are now extinct.)
