      Wow! A real taxidermy cetacean? In every natural history museum that I visited (and they're not few), cetaceans always are models; I always supposed that skin of these animals is too greasy for an adequate taxidermy art and the lack of fur don't allow to hide shrinks... So it's amazing to know that cetaceans can really can be stuffed, and with a realistic result!
