I went to the Grant museum of zoology and found the most magical specimens!
If you ever find your self in the area I highly recommend taking a look!
Here are a few of my favorites, especially the third to the last image on the left!!

Wow, that looks like a brilliant place to spend some time. I've never even heard of it but now that I know it's there, I will most definitely visit. Great pics too, thanks for taking the time & for sharing...x

I noticed a couple of these specimens are ones that my sisters boyfriend drew from. I remember now that he visited this museum for research in his final year at uni doing Fine Art. He drew many animals based on science and taxidermy. I hope to visit this Museum one day soon. My heart dropped when I saw the bay fawn :( Here is his work, you may like some of http://www.flickr.com/photos/petercarrington/
