A Whale of a Gift

Posted on November 4, 2015 by in The OFI Blog

When a 36 million year old ancient whale fossil cast was taken down at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History (NMNH) while part of the museum undergoes renovations, Mark Uhen (a paleontology professor at George Mason University (GMU) and Smithsonian research associate since 1994) asked if it might be displayed at George Mason.

The whale recently made a trip to GMU where it is now on display. You can read more on George Mason University News website here.
