    “educate visitors about their life in the wild.” ?? Reminds me of this BBC documentary about taxidermy, I remember in that many of the taxidermists were espousing the beauty of taxidermy, explaining howvthey were trying to make the animals come “alive”. Strange:

       yea it’s kinda weird but I’m sure whoever shot the thing in the first place used it for meat anyway.

      except when I see taxidermized seaguls. that raises my eyebrows.

    Most adorable dead animal in a jar of formaldehyde ever.

    It seems to me dead animals in a jar are not the best way to educate children on an animals “life in the wild”. These exhibits are for a biology class.

    I take my son to the zoo and the aquarium… and to the natural history museum.  Ask Maggie about the Great Mammal Hall at the HMNH.

    Strongly reminds me of Victorian era pygmies in jars.

    Couldn’t they just watch an episode of ‘Flipper’?  It must be dubbed in Javanese by now.

    This gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “wildlife preserves.”
