The Delaware Museum of Natural History is now the home of some remains of a young humpback whale that washed up dead on a Delaware beach.

The whale died and washed up in Port Mahon in April of 2017, and it was left to rot there.

Then after pressure washing it on the beach to remove the awful stench.

"So, what we have here is the skull and lower jawbone of a young humpback whale," said Dr. Jean Woods, Director of Collections at the museum.

The museum drove the skull, jawbone, and a few other bones from Pickering Beach, where it was decomposing, to its new home in Greenville.

There is still more cleaning to do of the bones, and they have to be put together to be whole again.

"And then it's a matter of figuring out about how we want to exhibit this," said Woods. "What's the story we want to tell about it? How are we going to use this as a way to draw people in learning more about the Delaware Bay and the Atlantic Ocean? So, it will probably be a year or two before you see this on exhibit."

The whale skull will be the first of its kind at the museum.
