Whale


Here is a couple of pictures of a whale skeleton that the students at Pearson College mounted.  If I remember correctly, the whale washed up on shore (Metchosin means stinking fish) and so they weighted it and sunk it in the bay until the fish, otters, seals, crabs, etc. cleaned the carcass and then brought it up and mounted it.

Amazing .
