Bassa Beach, and the whale was pulled with the help of the Coast Guard of the Royal Oman Police, after it became clear that the size of the whale was very large, and efforts to carry it did not succeed until after a very long time, as two heavy bulldozers were used to pull the whale, which weighed more than 12 tons, and it was not pulled out of the sea because of its weight.

Ahmed bin Masoud bin Muhammad al-Shehhi, a first guide for fishermen at the Fish Wealth Center in Khasab, indicated (to that the people of the village of Harf, led by the fisherman Abdul Raouf bin Muhammad bin Ahmed al-Shehhi, were able to catch the whale, which is the first whale of its kind of this size, as it estimated its weight.

Ahmed Al-Shehhi indicated that this type of whale is known locally as Samrani and Senari, and some government agencies such as the Department of Environment and Climate Affairs, regional municipalities and fish wealth were present at the site of the event, pointing out that the whale shark is a type of fish that moves slowly and is the largest type of fish.

If you’re like most people, when you think of kangaroos and wallabies, you think of Australia. After all, the pouched marsupials with prominent hind legs are indigenous to the land Down Under. Or maybe you think of your favorite marsupial characters, like Kanga and Roo, friends of Christopher Robin and Winnie the Pooh.

Regardless of your associations, surely, you’ve wondered what the difference is between a kangaroo (Macropodidae) and a wallaby (Notamacropus). They look so much alike. They’re both marsupials, meaning they’re born as an embryo and are developed, carried and suckled in a pouch on the mother’s belly. And scientists have even grouped them into the same order (Diprotodontia) and family (Macropodidae).

So what are the main distinctions between these two and how can you tell?

First, size. As a rule, kangaroos are much taller than wallabies. Kangaroos have a lot of length between their ankles and knees, which makes their legs seem out of proportion to their bodies. But there’s a reason for that. Their legs are built for speed and hopping on open terrain. Kangaroos can grow as tall as 8 feet (2.4 meters) and weigh as much as 200 pounds (90 kilograms).

Wallabies, on the other hand, have more compact legs that are designed for agility in forested areas. Although there are many different species of wallabies, they tend to weigh no more than 45 pounds (20 kilograms) and rarely getting any taller than 3.2 feet (1 meter), excluding their tails.

Another easy way to identify a wallaby from a kangaroo is their color. A wallaby’s coat is usually brighter with two to three different color variations. For example, the unfortunately named red-necked wallaby ha

s a grayish belly with red markings on its shoulders. The kangaroo’s coat is usually less splashy and more uniform, with muted colors of either brown or gray.

If the guys on “CSI” and “Law and Order” can use dental records to identify human individuals, why not extend the same practice to animals? That’s exactly what scientists have done. To be absolutely sure which animal you’re dealing with, you have to compare their molars. Since the two species eat their meals in different habitats, their teeth have evolved over the years to suit the specific vegetable matter they consume.

Most wallabies live in bushy forests where they eat mostly grass, leaves and fruits. That means the wallaby needs flat teeth to crush and grind up what it eats. Unlike the kangaroo, it doesn’t do much cutting, so its crowns are less pronounced. However, the wallaby does retain a single cutting tooth on the top of its mouth for any occasional cutting needs. It also keeps its premolars, while the kangaroo sheds his.
