31 Days of Halloween - Day 10

The next bit of seasonally appropriated travelogue comes from Paris, France. These photos were taken from the Gallery of Paleontology and Comparative Anatomy, part of the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle (National Museum of Natural History). Skeletons are a big Halloween trope and this building is crammed with them, both prehistoric and current creatures are all represented, along with some wet specimens and casts, including monsters. As an added bonus, when entering the gallery the first thing you are confronted with is this amazing statue, "Orang-outan éstranglant un Sauvage de Bornéo" by Emmanuel Fremiet (1824-1910).
