    Cause of death

    As the group of scientists hopes to identify the cause of death, it is assumed that the humpback whale was separated from its pod during the migration and died from stress as a result. After death, the whale drifted into the river mouth of the Amazon and was dumped on the floor of the forest when the tides pulled back. Brazilian news outlet O Tempo reports that they will take samples from the carcass in the next few days to gain further insight into the mysterious occurrence and hope to bury the body.
