ikan paus

i just found these pics taken in 2005 when a 40 ft whale (...i think) washed ashore in southampton. these pics were taken about a day or two after it was discovered at cooper's beach. no stinky smell yet at that time. not sure what they did with it. i know they had to take it out from there before it start decomposing, but only after the native americans from this area do their offering kind of thing. they were talks about preserving the bones at that time too but didn't quite follow after that. its amazing to see it lying there and picturing it actually swimming out in the ocean.
