Speaking of the Museum of Natural History in New York…

This museum is home to manly large dinosaur skeletons.  But – it’s also home to a life-size model of an adult Blue Whale.

After seeing the blue whale first, the dinosaurs looked tiny.  Take a look:

Pretty cool that one can see examples of both modern and prehistoric large animals in the same place.  It is claimed the Great Blue Whale is the heaviest animal that has ever lived.  While I had previously known that, being able to see examples of both a large sauropod dinosaur and a blue whale in the same museum certainly illustrated that fact, and is definitely worth checking out.
