Skeleton of blue whale

This skeleton on display at the Whale Centre is that of a Pygmy blue which beached at Albany Harbour in 1973. This whale was 72 feet or 22 metres in length and is a smaller variety of the Blue Whale which is the largest creature to have lived on earth (up to 112 feet or 34 metres).
