A big skull

By Guido Trombetta on 4:06 PM ,

Have you ever wondered how big is the skull of a blue whale? well the answer is in the picture here above and it's a BIG answer...
After all, Blue Whales at over 33 metres (108 ft) in length and 180 metric tons (200 short tons) or more in weight, are the largest animal ever known to have existed (that means also larger than Tyrannosaurus, Brontosaurus and Whatever-saurus).

That skull, 19-foot-long, is in the collections of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. while the amazing whole skeleton in the picture below is outside the Long Marine Laboratory at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
