Bones from a blue whale which washed up dead at a nearby beach back in 2010. It was on display at a San Francisco street fair this past weekend. It gave the public a chance to see and touch something they might never have a chance to see up close.

Looks fascinating, makes me think of the book "Island of the Blue Dolphins and the hut made of whale ribs.

It was a whale.

Thus it occupied such a big space.

Indrani said...

Very interesting and great photo opportunity too.

Sheryl said...

Enormous!!! It is amazing to see the scale of the bones with the people beside it.

I find whale bones on the beach here on the North Coast, usually after winter storms. (No skulls, though.) They usually look like they've been on the bottom for a long time. A photo of one is here: http://rustyring.blogspot.com/2011/03/power-below.html

Thanks for the neat pictures!

Awesome! We've only seen those in museum but nowhere as cool as that. Makes me wonder what are they going to do with the bones after the festival :)

Amazing! How absolutely incredible that you could actually touch it.

Very cool.

Emm in London said...

Wow, those are massive. It's incredible to think the bottom of the ocean must be littered by massive bones like these!

Arti said...
