Grant Museum of Zoology 30.10.12

On the day that Reiss and I took Shannon to The V&A we also took her to The Grant Museum Of Zoology. Its a little known museum which is only one room but it is filled to bursting with wonders! We all really enjoyed it and found it fascinating. It is a really hands on place that allows people to touch some exhibits and really draws you into learning.

 

Taxidermy was a way of teaching students about different animals in a safe environment.

 

This is a Rag Worm, I didn’t realise that it had legs like a millipede.

Shannon tried her hand at some photography in the afternoon as well. This is an Elephant skull.

All photos have been taken with the Fujifilm.
