Taking it carefully

The dissection of the pygmy right whale is a very detailed and time consuming process!

A quick update: the skin and blubber has been removed from half of the whale as you can see above. And our pygmy right whale is a young male, probably no older than 6 months old.

The scientists will be breaking for lunch shortly and then preparing for their talks tonight at the TelstraClear centre at Te Papa at 6.30pm.
