#flashbackfriday to when I was sketching the Mesozoic full-time. Here’s a couple pages of fauna from the Solnhofen Lagerstätte, one of the greatest fossil sites of all time and known for Archaeopterx. I drew this around May 2017, don’t ask me why I used to draw so small 🐠🔬✍🏻 #paleoart #sciart #scientificillustration #paleontology #paleo #fossil #fossils #naturalhistory #museum #scicomm #dinoart #jurassicpark #naturalist #animals #wildlife #science #dinoart #dino #dinosaur #prehistoric #art #artist #artistsoninstagram #coloredpencil #sketchbook #drawing #marinebiology #fossilfriday #fbf

This #fossilfriday we have a double specimen: in this fossil from the Natural History Museum of Milan, we have two species; today we are going to talk about the bigger one: The Scaumenacia curta, a prehistoric extinct fish lived during the upper Devonian belonging to the Dipnomorpha clade. This species from Canada probably couldn't reach ten centimetres of length and had a thick body with long dorsal fins. The S. curta represents a sort of missing link between arcaic and evolved lungfish. The name of the genus derives from Escuminac bay, that is the place where the fossils of this species are found and the name curta means "short". #biology #science #nature #naturalhistory #naturalscience #naturalhistorymuseum #museodistorianaturale #milan #milano #italy #italia #paleontology #fossil #fossils #skeleton #skeletons #bone #bones #fish #fishes #fossilfish #devonian #prehistoric #prehistoricfish #canada #likeforlikes #follow4followback #like4likes #followforfollowback

Such fun teaching #botany during Scientist in the Spotlight at NHMU this afternoon. (Volume up on the video! 🤣) "I wanted them to get to know plants and fungi and how much fun they can be," said botanist Katie Sanbonmatsu, who is the Ann Kelsey Student Botanical Project Fund recipient. Meet new scientists at NHMU during Scientist in the Spotlight on the first and third Friday of each month.
I’ve been thinking a lot about photography and fine art recently, contemplating why it often gets pushed to the side in discussions about “what art is”, or even about value. I think this has to do with how the medium has evolved, especially now that almost everyone carries a camera with them at all times in the form of a smartphone. The idea that anyone can do it has run rampant. And sure, anyone can “take” a picture, but what does it mean to create a photograph? Every composition I make is considered, thoughtfully arranged, and contains a piece of me. Sometimes these images take days to compose, sometimes only minutes, but I hope you too can see the difference between something taken and something created. I hope my work inspires connection and reflection when viewed. - Untitled 34 in the Veneration of Light Collection - Swipe for image details - #stilllife #curiosities #macabre #vanitas #skull #artlovers #naturalhistory #victoriangothic #deathpositive #mementomori #flora #fauna #bones #taxidermyart #artistsoninstagram #witchesofinstagram #deathpostiveart #photography #morbid #newcontemporaryart #remnants #art #collection #darkartandcraft #taxidermy #oddities #beautifulbizarre #saatchi #odditiesandcuriosities #theotherartfairLA

My drying board has been looking impressive 👀 Swallow tail kite and Yellow Crowned Night Heron in his breeding plumage. Though they are magnificent and will contribute to science, it breaks my heart knowing these animals died due to direct human interference. I mean, come on Florida, who shoots a heron? #ornithology #naturalhistory #museum #preparator #conservation #collections #swallowtailkite #yellowcrownednightheron
Where the searchlights find us drinking by the mausoleum door • “One of the most desolate Cities of the Dead, hemmed in between a Tremé housing project and the interstate. Built in 1823, it's a prime example of local cemetery design, with a dead-straight center aisle lined with grandiose Greek Revival mausoleum. A second Marie Laveau II the famous Voodoo Queens daughter or known as Marie laveau II, has a tomb here, it to is also also daubed with red-chalk crosses and covered with offerings Candles and Monkey and cock staturs and flowers.”

Red panda YAWNING Did you know: red pandas and giant pandas are distantly related; the name 'panda' is given to them because they both share features commonly found in bears and raccoons!

Celebrating #frogfriday with this Couch's spadefoot toad (which is actually a frog) that was found in the panhandle of Texas. According to the ADW (Animal Diversity Web), this species of spadefoot inhabits dry grassland prairies and mesquite savannahs in the Southwest, ranging into Southern Mexico. • They are fossorial, spending a majority of their time underground in burrows. These amphibians have been known to stay underground for up to 10 months without eating, surviving on their stored fatty reserves for sustenance. They get their common name and can be differentiated from other species by the black, sickle like spades on their hind feet. These spades are actually used for shoveling as they dig with their hind legs when settling into the ground. You can see them in the second photo. • Spadefoot toads will come up for rain events during breeding season, which occurs from April to September. Eggs normally hatch within three days and tadpoles develop quickly reaching metamorphosis in 9 days to 2 weeks because they are deposited in temporary or ephemeral pools. • The Couch's spadefoot is always a treat to see because they are uncommon to find in my area. It actually rained when I was visiting my home in Texas, so this guy was out and about enjoying it too.
Dispatches from the Micrarium... How many can you identify? Sure some labels are on display for clues... #naturalhistory #zoology #nature #evolution #museum #microscopic #invertebrate #animal #naturalist #micrarium #natureshots #wildlife #microscope #microorganisms
The Southern tamandua (Tamandua tetradactyla) is a semi-arboreal anteater found throughout South and Central America, it possesses a prehensile tail which aids it in climbing. They are related to the Giant Anteater, with molecular phylogeny pointing to a divergence at the end of the Miocene at around 12.9mya. Its also not unheard of for them to be kept as pets in the Americas. #animal #naturalist #anteater #tamandua #naturalhistory #taxidermy #nature #museum #zoology #wildlife #mammal #evolution #animalshots #creature

A recently finished card for the #nocturnaoracledeck - “Mushrooms.” If you’re interested in keeping up to date with the oracle deck, I’ve created a mailing list! Since social media sites can be crappy about actually showing you creators’ posts, plus this gives me the opportunity to talk a little more in-depth about this project. I’ll be including updates, FAQs, info on preordering, and more in the newsletter. Don’t worry - I’ll keep updates to twice a month at the most. You can find the signup form at thecreepingmoon.com/tarot (all the way at the bottom) or at http://eepurl.com/dHWXZP Thanks everyone for their support so far! #oracle #oracledeck #mushrooms #mycology #fungalkingdom #nature #naturalhistory #plantmagic #divination

Would you rather bite the bullet or get stung by this huge bullet ant? Bullet ant venom is made of poneratoxin, a neurotoxic peptide. The entomologist, Justin O. Schmidt described the pain from this ant's sting as a 4+, the highest rating in the Schmidt sting pain index . "...like walking over flaming charcoal with a three-inch nail embedded in your heel" Ouch! . . The Satere-Mawe people in the Amazon use these ants for a coming-of-age ceremony. Boys place bullet ants in gloves that they then wear. They must wear the gloves 20 times for 10 minutes each, in order to finish the ceremony. . . . __ Special thanks to graduate student, Chris Wilson for this suggestion for Formicidae Friday! #ouch #bulletants #ants #Paroponera #clavata #toxins #venom #entomology #myrmecology #amazon #insects #itsallgoodep #instaeptx #elpaso411 #museumlife #naturalhistory #insectsofinstagram #specimens #formicidaefriday
First day today, Happy Autumn everyone :) (c) Sandrine Maugy 2018 www.sandrinemaugy.com
My first bird mount. His name is Kenta, and he has had a rough (after)life. Drugs might have been involved. Neither life nor death has gone easy on him, I can't say that I had the best material to work with here, but at least he doesn't look THAT dead anymore. (.......and no, this is most certainly NOT the correct way to tie down feathers. My master left me alone in the studio today and I guess she will laugh out loud when she comes back on monday and sees this ) . . . #taxidermy #oddity #death #taxidermyart #curiosities #wildlife #hunting #huntingtrtaxidermyophy #naturalhistory #nordicspecies #oddities #darkart #vultureculture #nature #biology #skinning #hidetanning #deadstuff #garrulusglandarius #nötskrika #zoologiskkonservator

W tym roku wróciłem z niczym, ale tego się spodziewałem. Trafić jelenia przechodzącego 2m od aparatu wśród setek kilometrów ścieżek w lesie graniczy z cudem. Za rok powtórka :) Tym czasem pakuję walizkę i po 1.5 roku laby biorę się na chwilę za robotę. Ale na wiosnę wracam, z nowymi zabawkami i fotami :) Na zakończenie rykowiska wrzucam fotkę dwóch byków z okolic Zielonej Góry. Pozdrawiam!
