Recently, we ventured to the Beaty Biodiversity Museum at the University of British Columbia to check out the blue whale exhibit - one of only 20 exhibits in the world. At 26 metres (over 85 ft) long, the adult female blue whale was very grand and impressive indeed... she's massive! And since the skeleton is suspended, viewers can walk underneath it as well.... very cool. As you can see, it was a bit tricky for us to capture her hefty-ness in just one photo.
