cinnamonhellen Moose hunting is big on the island. Here's a skull left behind by a hunter in the barrens of the very southern tip of #Newfoundland #MistakenPoint. @natural_selections wish I could lug this baby home... #rain #weathered #hunting #moose #skull #ungulate #barrens #exploring #nature #bones #teeth #herbivore 3d

cinnamonhellen Foggy St.John's - the usual! climbed to the bottom of Signal Hill - an old military base, apparently one of the most haunted places in Canada. Geologically the hills and rocks on this coast are the same as the West coast of continent of Africa. #stjohns #newfoundland #signalhill #haunted #fog #ocean #port #harbour #seabirds #hike #canada #lovethiscountry #nature #geology #Africa #continent 4d

cinnamonhellen For every object you see on display, many more are stored for research. Protect our museums! #MuseumWeek @romtoronto #secretsMW Here are some dinosaur skulls - (unfortunately I didn't note the species, but likely duck billed dinosaurs). #protectmuseums #museumlife #workflow #dinosaurs #rompalaeo #palaeontology #collections #research #museumsmatterforthefuture #thefirstduckfaces #duckbilled #dino #atROM #reallyold #fossils 1mon
  •   gwynhwyfer I can vouch for their being hadrosaurs of some sort, unless my memory of last summer is that bad. Also the duckface hashtag made my afternoon. 1mon
  •   cinnamonhellen @gwynhwyfer awesome!! I trust your hadrosaur knowledge. Glad it put a smile on your face! 1mon

cinnamonhellen Red-tail hawk I skinned this week for a skeletal specimen, for the Toronto District School Board. They found this guy on school property...poor little buddy. Most common hawk in North America, pairs are known to hunt cooperatively ️. Whenever a hawk or eagle appears on screen, Hollywood plays the scream of the Red-tail hawk. Take that bald eagles! #redtailhawk #hawk #raptor #baldeagle #notascoolasredtails #bigbird #feathers #skinning #taxidermy #skeleton #deadbird #birdsofprey #museumlife #workflow #education 1mon

cinnamonhellen Happy Chinese New Year everyone! Year of the goat or the sheep? Well, goats and sheep are different genera, but same sub-family and it gets quite confusing even for scientists! Especially since both have domestic and wild species. One trait that separates domestics vs wild species sometimes, like this goat (Capra aegagrus) from the Caucasus Mountains is that they tend to have abnormally shaped horns, much longer and oddly curved than it's more symmetrical and proportionate wild counterparts. Special thanks to Burton Lim, Assistant Curator of Mammalogy @romtoronto #happychinesenewyear #CNY #yearofthegoat #yearofthesheep #ram #sheep #goat #domestic #wild #skeletons #deadthings #horns #antlers #collections #mammalogy #mammals #animals #racks #peoplebreedsomeweirdstuff #workflow #socialmediacanbesomuchwork #curator #atROM #stilllovemyjob 2mon

cinnamonhellen Haunting: Eskimo Curlew is on a historical "Field Checking List" from 1936 at the Royal Ontario Museum of Zoology. Red Listed on IUCN as "possibly extinct". Last sighting in Ontario from James Bay in 1976. They once migrated in large flocks from the Arctic to South America, possibly passing through Toronto! #extinction #soweird #endnageredspecies #IUCN #itsextinctguys #denial #extinct #eskimocurlew #1936 #tbt #atROM #cantbelieveit #historicalrecord #eBird #checklist #birds #ornithology #Numeniusborealis #zoology #migration #jamesbay #shorebird #sad #peoplearemean #Toronto #TO 3mon
