  • Inside Natures Giants | Writing, life and other animals
    on the grizzly side This week it was the turn of the whale As we d all been up to see the unfortunate whale the day it died the girls were incredibly excited to see the programme But I have to say that despite being very interesting and revealing some astonishing facts conducting the autopsy in the field while battling the tides and the worst of the Irish winter took the edge off the operation The elephant in the controlled environment of London s Royal Veterinary College had been an exercise in clinical precision The whale in contrast was a race against the elements a race that meant things we could have seen we didn t get to see or at least didn t get to see as clearly as we might have The girls were thrilled to watch the dissection of the whale that they d seen lying on the beach but for me the programme itself wasn t as engaging and informative as the elephant one the week before Next week it s back to the Royal Veterinary College where the subject going under the knife is a crocodile Should be revealing Posted by Calvin at 17 06
