A hint of curiosity came to mind regarding the continual beaching of whales. When you look at Darwin's theory of evolution, you notice creatures like the lungfish, Galapagos iguanas, flying fish, and the sea snake and get an inkling that perhaps something has brought whales to seek a presence on land much the same. Of course, research has found that many of the whales that end up beached are sick or lost due to natural anomalies. The theory of evolution is still a theory and yet the diversity and distinguishing characteristics of the above species spurs the thought justifying Darwin.
