THOSE OF A NERVOUS DISPOSITION LOOK AWAY NOW...
What better way to shake off the Monday blues than with a trip to the cabinet of curiosities at the Grant Museum of Zoology. My personal highlight was listening to one of the researchers there explain to a film-maker wanting to use their only human skull of the care and respect that must go into using such a precious item. Then casually leaving said skull lying around on one of the tables.
I will warn you... I deliberately took photos of some of the grossest and stomach churning specimens. Some photos I actually deleted as they made me feel sick (a jar of sea worms. Yuck!). It's a haven of strange things in jars, dissected creatures, skeletons hung from the ceilings, colossal elephant skulls, velvet worms and crabs, smiling rhino skulls and taxidermy wonders. So without futhur ado...
|A jar of moles. Obviously.|
|Bare brains. What made me laugh is how the jars resemble my Marc Jacobs perfume (minus the brains. obvs.)|
|Rhino colgate smile.|
|MISSING HUMAN SKULL!|
|Straight from a Tim Burton set.|
|Hairy toad. Not just an expression for ex-boyfriends.|
|Jaws. He got me.|
|Sea mice. Their hairs look holographic. MEGA. GROSS.|
|An octopus the size of a tack.|
