Beautiful Monsters: Rare Conjoined Gray Whales Found off Baja

Fisherman found two conjoined gray whales off the coast of Baja, California, the Mexican government told the Associated Press.  The rare calves died shortly after being born.

They were linked at the waist, with two full heads and tail fins, said marine biologist Benito Bermudez, who is a scientist with the National Natural Protected Areas Commission, or CONANP, said the AP. He said that scientists were collecting skin, muscle and baleen samples to study them.

The gray whales were found on a beach inside the Ojo de Liebre lagoon near the town of Guerrero Negro, Baja Peninsula, Mexico on Wednesday.

Every year more than 20,000 gray whales swim to Mexico from Alaska to mate and give birth.
