An exploding sperm whale that was beached and died in the Faroe Islands was caught on video as it spewed tons of guts and organs into the air. The video shows Bjaini Mikkelsen, a marine biologist, as he learned the hard way on what happens with gas.

Mikkelsen works at the national museum of the Faroe Islands in the North Atlantic. The methane gas builds in both animals and humans once they have died. If not released, then the animal or human will spew, like what happened here.

The sperm whale had been dead for two days, and the gas was too much for the animal’s body anymore and had to find an escape, which is what happened when Mikkelsen cut into it. The guts and organs just barely missed the biologist.

The residents of the Danish community wanted to use the skeleton at the museum. The exploding sperm whalegot stuck and was too big to remove from the narrow passage where it got stuck. All of this was captured on video by the Farolse Broadcasting Corporation. The video has been viewed on YouTube over 300,000 times.
