    Abstract

    The Baleen whales Balaenoptera edeni, Balaenoptera musculus and the Megaptera novaeangliae were reported from the Indian Coast. The skull of a B. edeni washed ashore in Dhanuskodi Island in the Gulf of Mannar and that of Megaptera novaeangliae from the Malabar Coast were studied. The identity of B. edeni was confirmed based on the study of its nasal bones. Biological significance of the occurrence of whales washed ashore along the Indian Coast is also discussed.
