What I learned last week at the American Museum of Natural History (Closeout)

27 Mar

Ancient humans lived in “bone houses!” (Hey now! <wink>)



Walruses get tummy aches.

That baby sea lion is just “resting.”Sealion2

And they have a life-sized Blue Whale that is so big they actually had to bend it to make it fit.


P.S. They also have a life-sized millipede apparently from Skull Island.

Skull Island

P.P.S. Holy Crap! I googled Skull island. There are tons of them! Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 11.10.31 AM Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 11.11.52 AM Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 11.12.10 AM Screen Shot 2013-03-27 at 11.12.34 AMI think it’s time to plan my King Kong world tour.

    Have enjoyed your museum shots. but now I am incurably homesick! Can you do this former NY’er a big favor? If you are still there when it gets warm, take some pics of the farms out on Long Islands east end. THE BEST VEGGIES ANYWHERE.

    So many Skull Islands probably have lots of bone houses!

    That whale reminded me of the House on the Rock. Have you ever been? Impressive museum. Ticket sales end one hour before closing, which would strap a person to run through in time. At the very end there is a “sea monster”
