Underneath a Whalesskin

This whale skelaton was carefully prepared and then reassembled in the stairwell of Science North in Sudbury. I have to say that it rivals the totem poles of the ROM for its impressiveness. When it was first recovered - the remaining flesh had to be removed and various parts required reconstructive repairs. The backbone is a metal pipe along which the spinal column is strung. A local arena was used to house the skelaton for part of its reconstruction.... I was awed and impressed with the information about the structure.... Yeah Science North. I still haven't seen the new Dynamic Earth display... hopefully this summer.
