A whale was found off the coast of Alaska with a harpoon spear in its neck that was over a century old. The whale must have been at least a few years old when it was first hit, so they believe this whale was 130 years old. It is rare to see a whale over a century old but scientists believe they could live to be up to 200 years old.
While helping Alaska Native whale hunter Billy Adams cut sections of blubber from a bowhead whale, Biologist Craig George pressed his knife into a deep scar in the whale’s skin. The knife made a crunching noise, so George cut deeper. Minutes later, he pulled out a sharp harpoon point the whale had been carrying for perhaps a century.
