Bones tell tale of whale journey

RESEARCH: South Australian Museum senior mammals researcher Cath Kemper studies the bones of a Southern Right Whale which washed up on a beach in Kingston in September last year.

BONES of a young Southern Right Whale – which was seen alive in Victor Harbor last year – were last week collected from a Kingston beach by researchers from the South Australian Museum.

Found initially by local resident James Ferguson in September last year as a full carcass, the remaining tail bones will now be displayed at the state museum and used in the long-term for further research.
