Scientists explained the origin of the observed ocean giant “rags”
The experts of Pacific whale Foundation during the study of waters in the Hawaiian Islands found the placenta, probably belonging to the humpbacked whale.
In the photo, published by the Pacific whale Foundation in Facebook, you can see a large white shroud, which on closer examination turns out to be the placenta, which appeared after the birth of a whale. The placenta ranged from 1.2 to 1.5 meters in length and was immersed in the water for about 2.4 meters. The photo probably was made 10 Feb.

Scientists have long assumed that humpback whales prefer to give birth in Hawaiian waters, but the document is ignored, writes Live Science.
“The placenta of the humpback whale may be the best evidence of what is happening here childbirth,” the Pacific whale Foundation.
However, this is not the first time experts find the placenta from the Hawaiian Islands. This discovery was already made in 1994 and is described in detail in the journal Marine Mammal Science in 1997.
However, a whale researcher from London Rosie Williams believes that the new discovery is equally exciting, and it will help you learn more about whale reproduction.
