Specimen of a Crescent Nailtail Wallaby specimen, Onychogalea lunata, collected from Western Australia in 1929 when the species was still considered to be common.

The Museum’s founder, Richard Owen, was a world-famous palaeontologist and one of the pre-historic animals he identified is the Megatherium, the giant ground sloth. Owen’s desire to display large specimens like this dictated the scale of the museum.

Mammoth (Mammuthus sp.) - Pleistocene epoch

I heard that the last body, which was found as naturally preserved by burried under the icebed on the pole, was eaten by several scientists :roll:

Yeah, I read somewhere, several scientists of Evolutionary Biology celebrated Darwin's Birthday by making a dinner party in a dining place that looks like a dinosaur. One of the menu was mammoth :( I hope this is just a stupid gossip :?
