Bizarre Beasts - A/K/A Critters in Nebraska

 
January -- what a month!
Dreadfully long and cold in these parts!
What to do?
What to do?
 


Elephant skeleton!
Last weekend AFTER I spent a few
hours decluttering,
Maddy and I had
to have a little break!



 So, we headed to Nebraska's largest natural history museum, Morrill Hall.
It houses the world's premier collection of
fossil elephants and dinosaurs!, interactive paleontology exhibits
a planetarium and other interesting collections - the latest
being one called "Bizarre Beasts!"
Combination panther,bear, ?



























Those beasts scared me a little! 
That one definitely needed some dental care!


A creepy flying dragon!

As you can see, Maddy took her own little beast along.
Is she too funny?  
She carries a stuffed animal everywhere we go! 

Normal size frog with Devilish Large Frog! 

After the museum, we headed to another
premier and fave location -
Starbucks -- for some cake-pops and a
warm drink. 
 It was a fun and creepy way to spend a cold
day in January.


These badgers reminded her of Narnia -- so had to get a picture with them!
