If you thought that the shark from Jaws met an explosively gory end, you ain't seen nothing yet. If you're watching this before eating, postpone your dinner plans -- nothing's staying down once you've seen a decaying sperm whale explode in slow-motion.
One of a pair of sperm whales that sadly died when it became trapped in a shallow channel in the Faroe Islands, the whale's giant skeleton was snapped up by a museum looking to use it for an exhibition. Of course, extracting those mammoth bones is no mean-feat, especially when a few days of decomposition has caused a significant build-up of explosive gasses.
Marine biologist Bjarni Mikkelse drew the short straw and was tasked with cutting the beached-beast open. Good job his overalls were already red. [Metro]
