BOCA RATON, Fla. (AP) -- A large, dead sperm whale has washed up on a South Florida beach and federal biologists were on their way to examine the carcass.

Boca Raton police say the whale was discovered Friday morning on Spanish River Beach. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration identified it was a sperm whale.

It wasn't immediately clear if the whale had been injured or was sick. Police say biologists will try to make that determination later.

Photos provided by Boca Raton police showed a large number of onlookers near the whale.
