THE STRANDED WHALE. To tlte Ellitn/" (4 the" Pl'c:;tat!f1/. Week/ DEAR SIR,- —It will doubtless interest many of your readers to know that the large "fish" which has been lying on the beach at Prestatyn some weeks is a species of whale, and is in all probability the calf of the bottle-nosed whale which went ashore at Mostyn. Few animals, if any, exhibit higher maternal qualities than do the ccrtacea or whale tribe. Usually docile in disposition, a female whale becomes daring and even ferocious if robbed of her calf, and will with- out hesitation risk her life in an attempt to have that of her young. There is little doubt that in the present case, the calf was killed, probably by a fisher- man, and its mother, in her great anxiety to recover it, scoured the coast line, and;got into water too shallow to allow of her return- ing to the ocean with the tide ebbing.—I cl am, yours truly, F. GILBERT SMITH.
