Drigg the Whale, Tullie House, Carlisle
This detail of the whale skeleton LinkExternal link in Tullie House shows three vertebrae and the tiny remnants of the whale's pelvis. Whales are descendants of land animals which moved to the sea about 49 million years ago. They lost their hind legs around 34 million years ago (the front legs having turned into flippers), and the pelvis has since become reduced to two tiny bones by the side of the backbone.
