Taxidermy at the Pember Museum


I've got a post up at GeekDad today about our trip earlier this week to the Pember Museum of Natural History in Granville, NY. It's a tiny one-room exhibit atop the public library, but I thought of its taxidermy collection when we were doing all that Darwin stuff. Links and more details at GeekDad.

I love the picture!

Taxidermy must have been fascinating pre-David Attenborough days. It used to be my favourite part of the Chambers Street Museum in Edinburgh when I was a child. It still helps give us a great idea of the scale of animals.
