Glyptodont

Published by at 9:29 am under animals,sketchbook,tools & tech

I forgot how neat the Harvard Museum of Natural History is. Or to be more precise, I forgot how FULL it is. I remembered the awesome glass plant collection, the mineral room, and some cool fossils. But the collection of animals is MUCH bigger than I remembered. It’s a shame that a few of the large mammals are literally coming apart at the seams, but they have some really awesome dinosaur skeletons. Here’s one example, the Glyptodont.

    As I’m sure you know the glyptodont, a cousin of the armadillo, is a mammal, not a dinosaur, and it lived just 10-15 thousand years ago, concurrent with humans. The Harvard Museum of Natural History displays more than 500 taxidermy mammals, and most were recently restored so hope you’ll visit again.

    Ah, I hadn’t taken note of that. I guess I should have simply called it an example of prehistoric megafauna.
