AMHERST, Mass. - Researchers at the University of Massachusetts have received the skeleton of the northern right whale found dead last week off Cape Cod. The announcement was made by biology professor William "Willy" Bemis, who noted that "it is our first right whale, and a very significant addition to the University’s growing collection of marine mammals." The whale, a female named Staccato, which had been monitored by the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown for 25 years, weighed approximately 50 tons, and was roughly 47 feet long. Staccato had given birth to at least six calves during her lifetime, scientists say.
