Me and my friend Matt went on yet another trip to London. Instead of shopping like usual we instead went to The Zoology museum at the UCL. The purpose- get some good inspiration pics for my artwork this year. Ok, we still did go shopping... but only after the work was done Smiley

The museum was AMAZING. All of the animals you are about to see have been dead since the Victorian times for scientific purposes. Now that really IS spine chilling! But god, it wasnt half hard to take pictures through two layers of reflective glass!

DISCLAIMER- I would say that what you are about to see is fairly tame in the great scheme of generally gory things.. but if you (or a child you are with) is particularly sensitive to dead things, skeletons and other body bits, please look away now!



I loved the label in his nostril... as if you wouldnt know Smiley



very aggressive owl!











Believe it or not this is a human skull! It has been taken apart to make it even more complicated!





I love his jewelly eye.





AND stupid bonus... me and matt visibly distressed on the train home Cheesy

Great shots,especially considering the glass obstacle.  Is that a dodo skeleton?  (p.s. you're hair is rad)
