        That sounds like a fascinating discovery, but I haven't a clue what
it is. I also can't guide you to a book or web site that would give
illustrations of whale skeletons. I've seen whale skulls and skeletons,
however, and if you can forward me a photo it's possible I could find out
what it is.
