    Damn. I didn’t see the request, but I don’t have pictures from one of the best museums I’ve visited… the Mutter Museum in Philadelphia. It’s all medical oddities. In fact, I think I first learned about it on Boing Boing. :)

    The screech owl video was a cool change. Liked the behind the scenes!

    What? You don’t have a colony of dermestids?

    I was talking once to my brother about my school’s dermestid colony and he didn’t believe that such a thing existed.  It turns out he misheard me, and he thought I was claiming we had a colony of dermestid beagles, apparently specially bred to gnaw very carefully.

    Dermestids are cool…you can hear them eating!

    A museum I used to work in had the following signs in the zoology wet lab…

    “Carrion Crew”

    “Trespassers will be Skeletonized!”

    Good times…

    At one time there were a couple of actual shrunken heads at the Chicago Museum of Natural History, I don’t know what ever happened to them?

    I love that the tiny little Cazenovia library in NY has an actual Egyptian mummy on display.
