Exp. 10 "Gathering of Leviathans"

After digging for a while, I found an interesting article about a new exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History. I details that they have a skull of an animal, called Andrewsarchus after the person who discovered it in the 1920s, I is basically a whale that had legs and lived on land. In addition, the skull has company. The rest of the exhibit has dozens of other skulls and skeletons of whales, dolphins, and porpoises. This was all wonderful to me because, like many others, I find whales fascinating creatures. I mean they humongous, "the biggest that have ever been, putting even the dinosaurs to shame." For example, a blue whales heart is the size of a small car. They are that big and they need our help. So I hope this article will inspire people to help in the effort to save whales from extinction.
Here are other articles I found interesting.


  1. "The blue whale's heart is the size of a small car..." woah. The size of that skeleton must be incredible. That is hard to even fathom! I think this is interesting because we have the technology and scientists that are able to uncover this information and share it with the public!

  2. This is awesome! I am interested to know if this animal went interchangeable between land and water, at least for a certain period of time?
