SeaWorld biologists saved a baby sperm whale that washed ashore in San Diego on Dec. 13, but now, according to the Orange County Register, the whale was spotted near the San Clemente Pier.

The newspaper reports that the whale was spotted on Monday in a kelp bed. The whale has been separated from its mother and needs milk to survive.

Experts say a rescue attempt will be difficult in this weather, and they may have to wait until Christmas for better conditions.
