Night at the Museum

Here are some pictures from my amusing trip to the Field Museum. I have been there a half dozen times, but never really looked at the exhibit descriptions. Boy are there some gems there...granted you need the immature mind of a 12 year old boy.
The dik-dik (a small antelope)

How about the "wild ass" (ah ha ha ha)

Oh no, hide your daughters, beware of the fearsome rape-o-saurus do you think the bushtits feels.

Okay I think the historical artist took some severe liberties with the animal recreation. Seriously, can you imagine this shark swimming around. Talk about a big lower lip.

Again, another historical artist recreation gone wrong. Do they ever sit back and look at their "guess" and say yeah that is totally plausible. Seriously, the thing has a sos srubbing pad on its head and back.

This one is humorous for two reasons. One, they actually took the effort to position to beetles mating. Second, the fact they had inform us on the card that they were mating.
