Heart from whale now on dis­play at the ROM

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

The 202-kilo­gram heart of a whale that washed ashore in New­found­land is now on dis­play at the Royal On­tario Mu­seum in Toronto. In 2014, two blue whales be­came beached on the prov­ince’s west coast — one in Trout River and the other in Rocky Har­bour. Sci­en­tists be­gan tak­ing them apart so they could be re­assem­bled at the mu­seum. The bones of the whale in Trout River were shipped to On­tario, while the heart of the whale in Rocky Har­bour was sent to Germany to be pre­served. The heart has since made its way to the mu­seum and is on dis­play.
