Rare Finds at the Field Museum in Chicago

Out of all the museums that I have had the pleasure of visiting, I believe that the Field Museum in Chicago ranks as the one of the best. And here are some of my favorite finds.

The Andean Cock-of-the-Rock, and while I have have previously made jokes about its relatives the Gresham Dick-on-a-Brick, and the New Jersey Douche-of-the-Roust, it never fails to flog a dead horse with a funny joke.

Slightly more unusual is the Screw Pine. However, while screwing and pining are not mutually exclusive acts, when the two are combined in flora, well you end up with this thing.

And of course no trip a museum is complete without viewing some wild ass. In this case, Somali wild ass. 

Now that's a fine ass. 

Okay, enough of that...More pictures later.
