|This article is of interest to the following WikiProjects:|
I once saw something I am fairly sure was one about 2 miles off of the coast of the Isle of Skye
There was Inky the pygmy Sperm Whale who was rescued.
One defense mechanism these animals use is to expel ink like their prey species - the squid. But it is a different material being that gets jetted. - Alan

Two stranded pygmy Sperm whales on Outter banks 9/16/11
We litterly saw a juvunal wash up on the beach during rough weather on 9/16/11. We called 911 and them a rescue center for animal control. They gave us instructions to keep it alive. It was a small juvinal about 4 to 5 feet long. We them found out that another whale, probably it's mother was washed up about 1/4 mile up the beach. She did not survive due to in injuries that I believe it sustained from swimming into a pier. The smaller one was quite active and only had minor cuts. The sad thing is there was nobody available to care for it so they put it down. All the time and effort we put into saving it only to have them put it down. This does not sit well with me. If you are a state that capitolizes from having beaches than I believe you should have a obligation to helping save any wildlife that becomes stranded. They spend millions of dollars to suck sand back up on the beach to help protect their homes but don't have the necessary resources to protect their wildlife.
