An unusual species of whale was washed up in Mid-Kerry, two weeks after a similar mammal was discovered in North Kerry.
The Cuvier’s beaked whale was found in Rossbeigh this week.
Sean O’Callaghan from Killarney is studying for a Ph D in sperm whales.
He believes the recent storms are the reason for both whales washing up.
He says a cause of death can’t be identified as the whale was decomposed.
Mr O’Callaghan says it’s hard to tell if more whales will turn up on Kerry’s coast.
