Newfoundland Blob

The Newfoundland Blob

The Newfoundland Blob was an unidentified mass (globster) that washed ashore near St. Bernard’s, Fortune Bay, Newfoundland on 2 August 2001. The specimen was 5.6 m long. Analysis of samples in 2002 showed that the Newfoundland Blob was a portion of the carcass of a sperm whale.[1]
