Nature Gathering: Skulls

  • Jan 20, 2013 · 3:30 PM
  • Maryland Naturalist Center

Would you like to meet other like-minded people who are interested in nature? Would you like to share what you’ve discovered outdoors? Do you have questions about what you see and hear outside? 

Join us monthly to meet other outdoor people, share your discoveries, or see what others having been finding in their travels and in their own backyards.  (You may be surprised!)

This month we'll focus on skulls.  We'll have some available for you to examine and compare.  And you're welcome to bring one in to show to others.

Our naturalists will be on hand for help identifying any plant, insect, bird, etc.  If it's feasible (and ethical!), bring in any other items that have you've been wondering about. You can also bring photos, images on your phone, or files on a thumb drive.  We'll have microscopes and magnifying lenses on hand for a closer look at what you bring.

Or just come to explore the amazing natural history collections at the Maryland Naturalist Center and have an informal visit.

All ages are welcome.

We’ll be hosting this event on the 3rd Sunday of each month.

    From naturalist Tim Hoen: A male llama has six fighting teeth at around two years of age, two upper and one lower needle sharp teeth on each side. These are hooked and angle back towards the rear of the mouth. Generally they are removed by llama owners because of the danger to other llamas and people if confronted with an aggressive animal.

      Good to know, I'll have to be more aware when collecting the llama poop from the pasture...

    A great collection of skulls and those who know about them. Loved the hands-on. Thanks!

    Agree, that it was a great experience! Learning about so many skulls went straight to our heads --- and this was just a first time. Did you hear how meal bugs can help clean tiny skeletons? Quite a story! We also learned informally about effective environmental advocacy. How a few committed individuals can change state laws right here in MD. How applicable in so many settings. THANKS!
