Dear Class 2-07 and Mrs. Kelly Wise,
	I am not sure you received the answer I sent you---so I will
re-try.  Thank you for your question:
	Do whales have bones?  The answer is yes.  They have bones, but
their bones are a much lighter percentage of their body weight than land
mammal's bones are.
	I hope you enjoyed the IMAX film.  Continue studying whales!
