Sperm Whale Skeletons and Blue Whale Hearts – New Exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History

skeleton3.jpg-1-of-1A new exhibit has just opened at the American Museum of Natural History in New York. While  perhaps not as controversial as the exhibit at the Vancouver Maritime Museum which we posted recently, it includes many whales bones, but, at least to our knowledge, no whale bone porn.  The new exhibit, Whales: Giants of the Deep, includes more than 20 skulls and skeletons from a range of whale species, including a skeleton of a male sperm whale that measures 58 feet long. Visitors are also invited to climb through the replica of a blue whale’s heart.  The exhibit, which runs through Jan. 5, 2014, is on loan from the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa.
