Blowhole, Canary Islands, Spain

Blowhole, Canary Islands, Spain
 The cetacean stranding is a phenomenon when Cetacea (whales and some other members of that order) strand themselves on land, usually on a beach. Beached whales often die due to dehydration, the body collapsing under its own weight, or drowning when high tide covers the blowhole. Several explanations of the stranding have been proposed.
