    The Great Mammal Hall, a two-story gallery, some 60 feet long by 40 feet wide, is the oldest and most dramatic gallery in the museum, with a 19th century arrangement of specimens that includes a full-sized giraffe, a bison, a narwhal, and three whale skeletons suspended from the rafters. Some creatures on display here, such as the thylacine, or Tasmanian tiger, or the Steller's sea cow, have now become extinct. On the balcony, visitors can find specimens from of Harvard's extensive collection of North American birds, as well as examine close- up the impressive toothed jaw of the Sperm Whale and the baleen of the Right Whale.
