Water

 Here we have another look at the blue whale skeleton that forms the heart of the Water Gallery.


More display panels are found.


This is a replica of an ungainly looking critter of the sea.


More panels examine different aspects of life in water.


For today I leave off with three models. Each has a person alongside it for scale, demonstrating the sheer size of these animals of the oceans.

  3. I once showed a video about beginnings where they squeezed water out of a meteorite. I forget how. Heat maybe. I guess the point was that water always existed.

  4. Hard to believe we have almost exterminated some of the ocean's creatures.

  12. I am always amazed by whales...that they even exist! It seem some new sighting of some which were thought to be extinct was on the news recently. Wish I'd paid more attention to the TV, but I missed which kind, except that they have babies so are thought to be on a come=back.
    Glad to have water on our planet!
