Did you know...

Stuffed

There are 1500 stuffed birds missing from our collections. 80 are left. They probably all rotted, insufficient mercury and arsenic compounds being used to preserve them. The remainders are probably quite toxic!

Curatorial Curiosities

Mammoth Milk Molar

This milk tooth from a Wooley Mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius) was found in Wookey Hole, Somerset. The mamoth, like its close relatives the extant elephants, had four molars. As the front pair wore down and droped out in pieces, the back pair shifted forward, with two new molars emerging in the back of the mouth. Elephants replace their teeth six times.
