The Sperm Whale Engineering Manual or Building a Big Whale Skeleton, Vol. 2
SKU: ISBN: 0-9747139-4-5
It's not like everyone is going to run out and collect a sperm whale, but if you were going to, or if you have a large whale to articulate, this is a manual that documents the engineering used to assemble such a big animal. It is based on the engineering done to assemble and suspend a 41-foot sperm whale in the Homer High School (Homer, Alaska) as a collaborative project between the Pratt Museum and the Homer High. Included are student illustrations of the bones and copies of the finest illustrations of sperm whale bones ever done. It now has details of several gray whales I have done since this sperm whale.
