A 20-metre whale was found dead on the beach of a Kuwaiti island and officials believe it died while searching for a warm area.

A group of Kuwaitis who were on a voyage near Failaka Island, around 20 km off the northern coast of the Gulf emirate, found the mammal lying motionless on the sand.

“An environment official said the whale appeared to have lost its way while searching for warm water in the Gulf and that it could have had an accident or died for some other reason,” the Arabic language daily ‘Al Anba’ said.
