As I indicated in my post from the other day, my trip to HMNH with Rory involved a lot of photography. Enough that if I put it all in one post I’d either crash WordPress or everyone would give up because it was tl;dr. So, today we’ll see the photos from some of the parts of the museum that feature more dead things, though not quite as old. That’s right, I’m talking about taxidermy.
As a reminder nobody needs a rhino horn but a rhino just like nobody needs an elephant tusk but an elephant.
After taking a close look at the Hippo I think I finally understand why they kill more people in Africa each year than lions, elephants, leopards, buffaloes, and rhinos combined.
I don’t know how you feel about snakes but I like them. Geoff? He’s not a fan. But I like them. I think Rory does too.
And, of course, what would a visit to these places be without a sloth? I have a permanent association with Jenny and sloths now. I’m not sure how she’d feel about that…
