Venturing out onto the open ocean can result in some pretty fantastic experiences. The environment below the surface of the water is full of amazing creatures and plenty of mystery. You never really know what you’ll come across.
When Mark Watkins headed out for a fishing trip off the coast of Western Australia, he’d hoped to come home with dinner. Instead, he came home with one heck of a story.
That’s because, as he and his father drove their boat through the choppy morning waves, they happened upon an amazingly bizarre sight. At first they thought it was a boat, then, a hot air balloon. The truth, however, was even crazier.

As Mark and his father headed back to shore, they thought it looked like the whale had lost a few hunks of its body thanks to some hungry sharks, and subsequently deflated. Not too often do you get to see something as strange as this!
