Whale in Australia

A 12-metre whale got caught in a fishing net off Queensland, Australia. It was also stranded in shallow water. Rescue workers cut the net, and the whale was able to swim free with the help of a rising tide. It was not injured. Scratches aside, the whale was not injured by the stressful experience. Big whales like this one are frequent visitors to the Bay.

Water on Europa
