A dead whale has washed up on a south-west beach.
Whale enthusiast and photographer Bob McPherson snapped the images on Saturday.
“It appears to be a Blue Whale that has died down near the Fitzroy River area,” he said.
“These are the biggest whales in the word and very rare.
“These whales can grow up to 30 metres long and up to 170 tonnes.”
Mr McPherson captured the pictures for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.
They will conduct an investigation into why the whale died.
“The skeleton may then go inot a museum,” Mr McPherson said.
“We don’t have a Blue Whale skeleton in Australia. They are very rare.”
Mr McPherson said the whales were huge.
“Their heads can be eight to nine metres wide,” he said.
“It could fit an elephant in its mouth.”
