Rescue teams from the Clearwater Marine Aquarium and Clearwater Fire Rescue used large bags to move 2 melon-headed whales distressed in shallow waters off Sand Key on Thursday. Officials say they’re not sure what caused the whales to become distressed...but big shout out to them for a job well done.
Melon-headed whales look a lot like dolphins and typically found in deeper watesr.
