Die Dodo is Dood, the Pretoria Natural History Museum (Transvaal Museum)

2012.06.11-IMG_3406Paid a visit (June 11, 2012) to the Pretoria Natural History Museum, aka DITSON Museums of South Africa (Natural History), and formerly known as the Transvaal Museum. Some nice exhibits, and some odd ones (like the one at left).

There was a nice exhibition of paleontology, and some good examples of early 20th century taxidermy.

Also on display were exhibits of two of my favorite creatures, the dodo (of course) and the Coelacanth.
