 "Sword-ray" FISH

The LARGEST bony fish that ever lived, it grew up to 18' long, distantly related to tarpon.  It had a voracious appetite, swallowed fish whole, some six feet or more in length.  There are fossils excavated showing a "fish within the fish" such as this fossil found in Kansas in 1982.  The fish it swallowed was 6 feet long!

Pliocene to Miocene Era (1.8 to 25 million years old), found in North & South Carolina

WHALE BALEEN (not fossil)

Wide strips of baleen (which is made from keratin, the same material your fingernails or horses hooves are made of) with fringes of hair hang down from the inside of the Baleen Whale's mouth like strips in a car wash.  Plankton catch on the hairs which are then licked off by the whale's tongue and swallowed. (See Alaska page 5 under BALEEN for etchings on baleen available for sale, by Alaskan Native Eskimo):

Here is an exquisite basket made of strips of whale baleen by Inuit in Alaska, topped with a whale tale of walrus ivory and a bottom disk of ivory.  These retail for a minimum of $400.  This one is a gift from Glenn to Heidi

NAMED WENDI

MVC-441S.JPG (37384 bytes)MVC-443S.JPG (38304 bytes)mvc-449s.jpg (63380 bytes)  

5/17/03.  We are at the Carolina Forest High School in Myrtle Beach SC where teacher Art Hawley (right) inspired the National Science Honor Society students to build a life-size blue whale (an endangered species, the numbers have gone from 200,000 in 1900 to about 10,000 now) to emphasize the size of the largest animal in the world (100 feet long!).  They laid out and taped together heavy plastic with packing tape, named it Wendi the Whale, and attached a rented blower at the tail end to inflate it!  Duct tape defines the designs for the mouth and eyes on the sides.  A great way to heighten awareness of our environment!  Our hats are off to you, Art, and your students!

MVC-447S.JPG (37766 bytes)MVC-448S.JPG (38095 bytes) 

Here three students from the Honor Society are ready to explain more details about Wendi the Whale, they're sitting inside the MOUTH of it!  Glenn is standing in the midsection inside the whale in the picture on the right - Glenn, there IS a light at the end of the tunnel, but the tunnel is not what you THINK!  Pretend you're Jonah, and fill in the blanks....
