    Houston museum of natural science

    My dad and I went to the museum today to see the famed Lucy. Unfortunately I couldn't take any pics in the entire exhibit, which was just a bunch of Ethiopian stuff, and her bones. It was good to see the bones and the full scale model recreation. Apparently...she just looked like an upright mini gorilla with a less conical head. While it was interesting, I wouldn't go back to the same exhibit. We didn't go through the whole museum (not enough time), but did hit up the entomology hall and butterfly exhibit, which have always been my favs.
    Also, I don't think they've changed the "normal" part of the museum since I was about 5


    Some dinosaur pics that didn't come out bright enough

    36" conch shell



    Scallops



    Cave cockroaches

    Australian walking stick. They also had an orchid mantis but it was tiny and in a weird spot, so I couldn't get it



    Hissing cockroach



    Beetle time





    African giant milipede



    Mexican red-kneed tarantula



    Entrance to Cockrell Butterfly Center. The whole thing is kept at 80 and 80% humidity. Paradise!

    Beetles account for 25% of the known life forms on the planet.
    I think 1 out of every 3 living things is a beetle.
