Animals in their natural habitats
What I liked best was the dioramas, with realistic life-sized animals before a painted background of their habitat. These are North American Mammals.
That is actually a live Emperor Scorpion :O
Now, the Hall of African Mammals.
And last, a few gems (literally 😉 ) from the Gem and Mineral section of the museum.
This is a mammoth from the nearby Tar Pits museum.
And a family of Saber-toothed Tigers, from the same place.
Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good.
