Whales with scale

Here are two whale skulls, with my spouse kindly standing in for scale...The first is a gray whale skull. The grays are doing their yearly migration down from Alaska to Baja, where the mothers will give birth to their calves.


The second is a fin whale skull. They are the second largest whale and second largest animal, after the blue whale.

Hi:
I came across your photo of the gray whale skull (and your husband). May I ask where this is on display?
Thanks. harold@nature-watch.com
