Pukehina Predator

AB279

Pukehina Predator

Region of origin: Pukehina Beach, New Zealand

A strange, large marine animal whose body had washed up on the shores of northern New Zealand. Heavily decayed, identification was difficult; based on photographic evidence it was suggested by researchers it could most likely be an orca but many maintain that it more resembled a species of basilosaurus, an extinct genus of proto-whales.
