Experts said the carcass belongs to a sperm whale, the largest toothed predator in the world. 

The state of decomposition is so advanced that the cause of death is unlikely to be determined, according to marine life specialists cited in the local media. 

The giant fin whale that washed up on the shore of Ashkelon in southern Israel last year is believed to have died due to pollution.
