This Nov. 20, 2019 photo provided by Oregon State University shows the skull from a blue whale skeleton being transferred to a trailer after pulling it from Yaquina Bay, Newport, Ore. The carcass of a giant blue whale that's been submerged off the Oregon coast for more than three years was hauled to the surface so it can be reassembled, studied and put on public display, scientists with Oregon State University said Friday. The dead whale, which was about as long as two school buses, washed ashore near Gold Beach, Oregon in 2015. It's exceptionally rare to see an intact blue whale carcass wash ashore and the only other documented case happened more than 200 years ago, when the Lewis and Clark expedition noted that they saw Native Americans salvaging edible parts from a blue whale, said Bruce Mate, emeritus director of Oregon State University's Marine Mammal Institute.
