What looks like a Blue or Great Whale washed ashore today on Failaka Island. Whales can be found in the Indian Ocean so my guess is it got lost and ended up in the Gulf where it ended up dying.
Below is another video of the whale when it was first found while still floating in the water.

Update: A reader sent me the image below along with the following note:
I was walking yesterday evening on the beach close to the Village (Abu Hassania area) and I found 2 dead dolphins. One was decomposed, so it has probably been there for a few days or a week but the other one seemed to be there for 1-2 days and had a fishing net around! Such a sad thing to see…especially when in Kuwait there are only around 500 hunchback dolphins!
