Last day of dissection

This morning the internal organs will be removed and preserved in jars for later study.

I am assured that this will reduce the smell – I have a pretty good stomach for this kind of thing but whale guts smell bad!

You can see part of the jaw being removed in the above picture and below is the view looking from the body up to the head.

The large white mass in the near the top of the skull is tympanic bulla (the ear bone).

You can see the heart in the lower right hand side corner with arteries coming out of it – they look like collapsed sausages.
