Backbone connected to the neck bone

Recently, two whale skeletons were reconstructed and assembled for display in the new Charleston Marine Life Center.  A team of student and teacher volunteers led by Lee Post (a.k.a. the BoneMan) spent all of October rebuilding a killer whale and gray whale skeleton on the OIMB campus. A special thanks to our volunteers, Nancy Treneman, Ester Sanchez, Julia Ledbetter, Laurel Hanley, Kunica Kosugi, Ashley Hueckstaedt, Kara Robbins, and Caitlin Plowman for their incredible work.
