Prehistoric Whale bones discovered in Desert


Paleontologists in Chile have made a surprising discovery in the desert. Scientists uncovered what appears to be a massive graveyard of whale bones in Copiapo, about a kilometer away from the ocean. More than 80 whales, including 25 complete skeletons, were found in one of the driest deserts in the world.

More than 2 million years ago, scores of whales congregating off the Pacific Coast of South America mysteriously met their end. Today, the whales have emerged again atop a desert hill a kilometer from the surf, where researchers have begun to unearth one of the world's best-preserved graveyards of prehistoric whales.
