Flensing a whale

CNN has an interesting article on conducting a necropsy on a beached whale. It's kind of graphic for you weak-stomached, but worth the read. I like that the author notes the relatively high frequency with which whale-ship collisions occur. A little bit more on how to prevent that might have been interesting, but overall a very good article on an aspect of marine science I've never thought about before.
