EMBRYO FIN WHALE
Preserved from the days of the Antarctic whaling. The mother whale was landed at South Georgia.
Fin whales are the second largest whales in the world next to the blue whale. They can grow up to 25 metres long. This embryo is only about 4 cm long.
Between the 1900s and the 1960s, thousands and thousands of whales were fished out the waters surrounding Antarctica.
