Skeletons Museum, Orlando FL

The Skeletons Museum has a display of several hundred—you guessed it—skeletons. Everything from whale skulls to complete field mice. They also had a nice exhibit demonstrating human evolution with casts of hominin fossils. Here are some photos from a visit:

  1. Back when I had my Deaths-Head Cockroach colony, I had some of those dermestid beetles get inside. They didn’t bother the roaches at all (they just ate the molted skins) but my apartment was soon full of little black flying beetles that were getting into everything. It took me months to get rid of them all.
