Day 298: Meet a gal named Sue at the Field Museum

June 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

Took me nine months to make it, but I finally met Sue.

Sue is the largest and most complete tyrannosaur skeleton currently in existence, and she’s the main exhibit at Chicago’s famous natural history house, the Field Museum.

Also spent some time in an ancient Egyptian tomb, saw a sarcophagus and admired a mummified little boy.

                                                                                                                                          

Apparently in Ancient Egypt, instead of police dogs, they had police baboons. In this picture you can see one wearing what looks like a nun’s habit.

And thank god the spiral-face shark and the giant ground sloth are long extinct.

 



 

 

 

 

 

 

Overall, I give it two totem poles way way up.
