Look, up in the sky, it's a whale!

True, if your definition of "sky" includes right over your head inside a large room. But this is a skeleton of the Eocene toothed whale Basilosaurus cetoides, which is the Alabama state fossil. This image is on the new postcard from the Geological Survey of Alabama. If you are in Tuscaloosa, stop by and get one (or several); they're free.
