RARE WHALE SKELETON DISCOVERED IN THAILAND
An almost perfectly preserved whale skeleton thought to be between 3,000 and 5,000 years old has been discovered in Thailand.
The bones were found in early November some 12km (7.5 miles) off the coast just to the west of Bangkok.
The 12m (39ft) long skeleton is thought to be that of a Bryde’s whale.
Experts hope the find might provide “a window into the past,” especially for research on sea levels and biodiversity.
