Here students Jeremy and Andrew view an immense gray whale skull that is on display. Most of the skulls we looked at were considerably smaller!
Here is a variety of hides from a variety of northwestern native rodents, including Douglas' squirrels, northern flying squirrel, several voles (including an albino specimen), some least chipmunks and a variety of small insectivores.
Here is a close up of a gopher snake skeleton that we got to view. Notice the large eye sockets, wide bones reenforcing the nose and the many, many ribs.
We all left the museum feeling very grateful for the opportunity to have been there and for all of the knowledge we had gained.
More updates coming soon!
