This festive-feeling Friday, I have a mystery object for you that I spotted in Museo Nacional de Ciencias Naturales in Madrid earlier this year:
This specimen is part of an exhibition showing some of the historical cabinet type displays from the early formation of the Museum. I couldn’t find a species identification, but I think I know what it is. The question for today is, do you?
Let me know what you think in the comments below – I’d be fascinated to hear your thoughts.
Have an enjoyable festive season!
It looks nice and white, did they find it in a barn?
I was wondering if it was a barn artifact as well!
That beak! That huge ear opening! Can it hear in the dark? Only – why is near sea shells? Tricky tricky.
