Bellsund, Malbukta, Beluga Fishery, Whale Bones - Svalbard - 2

Svalbard / Spitsbergen pictures, travel in the Arctic

A partially assembled Beluga skeleton on the beach, probably a composite made from the bones of different whales. There are no teeth at all to be found in any of the jaw bones, these probably having been taken by the whalers as souvenirs or as additional saleable parts of the whales.
