BlueHorse, I just saw that picture turned into a Valentine's card with the caption "You've shaped me unimaginably." If that's wrong, I don't want to be right.

This is fabulous, ocherdraco. I'll be watching with glee and passing it along to some interested parties. Thanks!

I just watched her cut up and disembowel the wolf.
It was quite ripe and gassy.
Not for the squeamish, be warned!
love how she distracts her reflex to vomit by talking.
Keeping her mind occupied with other thoughts.
...Damn, you go girl!

I just moved away from Missoula and yeah, this collection is amazing! Also, you can volunteer to help with specimens and gain some solid taxidermy skills for free! Why I miss the mountain west.

Oh, this is great. Gross science is my favorite kind of science. That wolf disassembly is amazing to watch.

This reminds me of the dead whale episode of Inside Nature's Giants. Great watching for connoisseurs of bloated sacs of guts.
