Our Southern Right Whale

EUBALAENA AUSTRA-

Displayed overhead is the authentic skeleton of a female Southern Right Whale, retrieved from a carcass that washed up at Blue Water Bay, near Pearly Beach in September 2005. The process of restoring and preserving the bones took seven years. It was mounted in the Great White House Restaurant in May 2013. Hoisting the finished skeleton in position took three nights and 10 pizzas. The floating bones towards the rear of the skeleton are the remains of the pelus - it serves the purpose of holding the sexual organs in position. The hind legs of these Mammals were lost in the evolution process of their species. You can identify life size replicas of the ear, eye and heart. This whale’s death, in 2005, was likely the result of a collision with a ship. The reconstructed bone fractures are indicated by contrasting brick colours on the skeleton. This permanent exhibition is now as much a reminder of our responsibility to the marine environment as it is a truly breathtaking spectacle and achievement. You can also spot Common and Bottlenose Dolphins as well as African Penguin skeletons on display.

INTERESTING FACTS SKELETON WEIGHT: 2 ton / 2000 kg SPECIES LIVE WEIGHT: Up to 40 ton SIZE: 14.3m The Southern Right Whale has 3000l of blood pumping through its veins with the heart pumping at 16 beats per minute.
