A 10-tonne whale skeleton will be displayed for tourists at a private tourism site in the southern province of Bac Lieu.

According to Ngo Xuan Phan, Chairman of Bao Hoan Car Joint Stock Company's executive board, the skeleton, which measures 33m long and 4m wide, was bought from a fisherman in Phu Quoc Island, southern province of Kien Giang.

It is said that the whale, weighing 100 tonnes, died some 60 years ago and was buried by local fishermen.

Because of its age, the buried skeleton was partly damaged. After being repaired, the skeleton will be displayed at Nha Mat Tourism Site.-VNA
