Volunteering Week Seven

This week we continued working through the boxes. We found lots of skulls (mainly rodents); hippo teeth; cat claws and small boxes with miscellaneous small bones.

Cat claw?
We then decided to open the box labelled 'Monkeys x7', and Lynsey filmed it as part of our Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery Twitter takeover day on the Thursday. The box did indeed contain seven primates, including a Marmoset and a Lemur! The following pics contain rather gross images of dead primates.. you have been warned!

We catalogued one of them and then had to pack away - we will continue with the box in Week 8!
