Heute hatten wir mal einen freien Tag und sind nach Caniçal gefahren, wo in der Baía d’Abra ein ca. 12 m großer Pottwal liegt. Er scheint schon länger tot zu sein, was die Hautfarbe und auch der Geruch verraten. Und sicher können wir verraten, daß es sich um ein Männchen handelt, was sein großer Penis verrät. Gestern noch sahen wir ein lebendiges Exemplar, der heutige Anblick war nicht so schön. Zuerst der Pottwal von gestern und dann einige Bilder von heute. Das Kadaver wird untersucht um die Todesursache festzustellen und dann sicher als Skelett im neuen Walmuseum ausgestellt.  

Today we had a day off and so we went to Caniçal, because in the bay called “Baía d’Abra” there is a dead sperm whale of ca. 12 meters. He seems to be dead for a longer time, because of his color and smell. And we are sure that’s a male, because of the big penis which is good to see. Yesterday on our trip we’ve seen a sperm whale alife, the view today wasn’t so nice. I will post first one pic from the sperm whale yesterday and then some of today. The dead animal will be observed and studied to find out why he died and then the skeleton for sure will be shown in the new whale museum. 

Hoje tivemos um dia de folga e fomos até ao Caniçal porque na Baía d’Abra tem um cachalote de ca. 12 metros. Parece de estar morto mais tempo por causa da core e do cheiro. Temos a certeza de que se trata de um macho porque vê-se bem o pénis grande. Ainda ontem observamos um cachalote viva nos nossos mares, fui muito mais agradável to que vimos hoje. Primeiro vai uma foto de ontem e depois alguns do animal morto de hoje. Neste cachalote vai ser feito uma necropsia para saber as causas da sua morte e depois, de certeza, vai o esqueleto para o novo museu da baleia.
