"SANTIAGO, Chile (July 11) - Chilean scientists said on Friday their study of
a huge blob of flesh found on a Pacific beach about three weeks ago concluded
it was the carcass of a sperm whale, ending speculation of a giant octopus.
Scientists have been baffled by the 40-foot-long (12-metre) mass of
gelatinous tissue found on a remote beach in southern Chile, with initial
ranging from whale blubber to a disputed species of giant octopus.
Researchers at the Museum of Natural History in Santiago were the first to
reach a conclusion after analyzing samples of the decaying specimen and finding
glands of a sperm whale."
