Hi All,

got these pics from DOC officer (dept conservation) this blob washed ashore 22nd Dec on Oreti Beach near Invercargill (VERY southern NZ). They were sent to me in case it was a squid...........but it doesn't look squiddish to me! It looked mammalish! What do you think?

It's a decayed sperm whale melon. Betcha a bag of peanuts.
Would those be dry-roasted and salted? I won't accept your bet however. Definitely have to go with the whale theory.
