Got a minute? Watch this time-lapse video of a killer whale skeleton being assembled right on our exhibit floor-- 286 pieces of an 18-foot-long orca whale assembled by 37 volunteers and 5 staff over 5 weeks.

Follow “bone-building expert” Lee Post, Academy staff, and volunteers as they articulate the bones of a 286 piece orca skeleton. Read about the entire process in this blog.

Visit the Built for Speed exhibit and see the completed skeleton –now on view through September 29. calacademy.org/explore-built-for-speed/
