Kilbritan Whale – an amazing opportunity to look at the real skeleton of a whale.

This whale measures 19.81 meters and its jaw has a length of nearly 5.5 meters. The story of this mighty whale begins on January 15th, 2009, when he was strayed and confused at the beach. Despite the large action and efforts, unfortunately, this creature could not be saved.

A US specialist was brought in to take a look at the corpse with the possability of being able to section it, after all his efforts the problem  then was of what to do with a powerful body?

With the help of local volunteers who worked in sections of several hours between tides, they managed to clean the skeleton from meat and bones, and then laid them together in a public park in the village, which is a favorite place for family walks.
