slothropologist Named to honor Dr. Adolph #Scholz- a German chemist and #minerals collector- #Scholzite is a rare zinc #phosphate #mineral. Scholzite forms nice bright white tabular #crystals and is associated with other rare phosphates.
#Funfact, scholzite is dimorphous with the mineral parascholzite. A dimorph is a mineral that has the same chemistry but different structures.

amoralsol When I get to work in the am, the lull before the storm. Sipping on my tea like a gangsta in my new mug. Second graders can be tough! But I love them all. Hahaha #toliveanddieinla #laisinmydna #nhmla 4d

lucyferr_ #Sloth vs Prehistoric sloth. #NHMLA #fbf I was utterly impressed by the size of this sloth. I don't know why, Sid on Ice Age is also very tall. I've seen that movie a million times. How did I miss that? #YesThatsMyReference 4d

smartrf The wood/madera section in #GrandesMaestros is stunning. I want that rocking chair, and the tray made from a hollowed out mulberry root is spectacular. #NHMLA #folkart #art #LosAngeles #LA #wood @nhmla 4d

afterlife_anatomy Today I have the privilege of working on a juvenile red tailed hawk @nhmla with Tim Bovard, @allis and @sicksadmad Since I am at the museum I am able to work on these specimens, otherwise I would not be able to due to the MBTA. #mbta #losangelesnaturalhistorymuseum #nhmla #taxidermy #taxidermyclasses #taxidermyclass #taxidermyworkshop #taxidermyteacher #taxidermyinstruction #learntaxidermy #zoology #biology #preservation #naturalhistory #reference #taxidermyinstructor #taxidermist #taxidermyinstruction #taxidermyworkshops 4d
