A whale of an anatomy lesson for students

Fifth-graders place spinal bones of a gray whale into place Monday after Dan Sudran brought it to John Muir Elementary School in S.F. Sudran salvaged the skeleton when it washed ashore last year on Pescadero State Beach, and has been showing it off at schools. Besides anatomy, students like Damar Eddison, right, got another key lesson: Dead whales don't smell so hot.
