Hybrid between a blue whale and a fin whale - the carcass, after flensing of
the left-hand side, has been keeled over. The dorsal fin has been cut off
for documentation. Note the shape of the flipper and the rather U-shaped
than V-shaped contour of the rostrum, both features atypical of fin whales.
