I’m in love with this puffer fish 😭💕🐡
Hello! I work for my school’s natural history collections so I understand all the laws and have all the permits I need to care for my dead things. This piece is not a personal collection piece but the schools.
Today, we skinned a roadkill deer! She’s gonna make an excellent mount, and a few very nice dinners!
Watch Moose Fight in a Quiet Alaska Suburb
A fight between two moose was recently captured on video in a quiet suburb of Anchorage, Alaska. Male moose tend to be more aggressive during this time of year, their annual rut cycle, when they spend virtually all their energy looking for females to impress and mate with.
Friendly reminder: these are wildlife. Ice age relict wildlife. They are ENORMOUS and they WILL attack if they feel threatened. If you see moose in your yard you stay the hell inside.
The Glossoscolecidae are a large family of earthworms which has native representatives in South and Central America. The earthworms in this family can reach up to 2 meters in length.
Much like architectural models, taxidermy dioramas were often first made on a small scale. In the 1920s, taxidermist Carl Akeley sculpted scale figures of the animals, indicating the individual poses and composition of the final diorama. This is @wilderduncan’s recent exemplary piece, made at the museum, while still in progress. So cool! (at American Museum of Natural History)
