The Mutter Museum in Philadelphia was originally opened in the 1900s for medical students to come and see in person extremely rare conditions, and the effects of diseases that had been cured or eradicated. It still stands today as the best place for medical students to get ” hands on” experience  as well as a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike.

33 round tailed horned lizard skulls found while cleaning out an America Kestrel nest box. “My wife and I have a place in the Chiricahua Mtns of SE Arizona. I have a Kestrel nest box there. This spring the Kestrel pair raised 5 young in the box and after they were through nesting I cleaned out the box to get it ready for next year. The only bones in the box were 33 Round-tailed Horned Lizard (Phrynosoma modestum) skulls, which I placed in my palm and photographed.”

This is a pheasant skull named Alphonse.  He lives in a reliquary box on my desk.  It was a birthday gift in 2009, and definitely the best gift I’ve ever gotten.
Tu me manques, mon petite sauvage.
