Research Photo Journal

Over the last couple of weeks I have accumulated a bunch of pictures from my research at the field museum, so I thought I’d share some.

articulated skeleton of Hemicentetes nigriceps (aka Highland Streaked Tenrec)

Skins for Hemicentetes nigriceps

A drawer full of solenodons

Echinops telfairi (Lesser Hedgehog Tenrec) seems to be a close match

Playing with clavicle articulation of Tolypeutes matacus (Southern Three-banded Armadillo)

I was quite surprised to come across this Priodontes maximus (Giant Armadillo), which was about the size of a toddler!
