Vietnam to display whale skeleton
Published on Aug 1, 2012
Authorities in the central Vietnamese province of Quang Ngai will invest VND15 billion (US$711,300) to restoring two whale skeletons, one of which is believed to be the country’s largest. Local news portal VN Express reported that the larger of the two skeletons is more than 20 meters long and hundreds of years old. The skeleton will be displayed in a purpose-built 700m2 exhibition hall next to the Tan Tomb whale cemetery. The species of whale was not reported, but the size means could be sperm whale. The skeleton of a 15-metre-long sperm is already being exhibited on Phu Quy Island, in Vietnam’s Binh Thuan province.
