Who own's this Jawbone?
Today Esther's mum kindly gave us a whale's jawbone to examine.
Whilst out walking in Wanganui Beach, Esther's family noticed a stick like object poking out from the sand. On closer inspection they discovered it was a jawbone. It belongs to a whale. With our new knowledge of whales, we now know that it has to be a Toothed whale and not a Baleen whale. We have yet to work out which whale type it belongs to.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful discovery.
