A finback whale was discovered on the bow of a container ship in New York Harbor Saturday, reported the Westport News. The 57-foot whale weighs between 55 and 60 tons and is currently being examined after being transported to Jersey City. The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is conducting the necropsy reports the Wall Street Journal.

According to an official from the Stranding Center, the whale is in surprisingly good condition. Jay Pagel, a field technician for the center said, "finding something this intact is an unusual opportunity.” Usually such a carcass is damaged or eaten by sharks Pagel said to the Wall Street Journal. The only trauma found so far on the whale’s body is a deep indentation on its underside near the jaw.
