Ever wondered how the inside of a cow udder looks? 🐮🐄❤️
In the Anatomical Collection we have this gigantic wet specimen showing a cross-section of an udder - the structure of the tissue is amazing 🤓
- I put a cup next to it on the last picture to show how big the specimen is...not sure it does it justice though 😊 - really heavy to move around... 💪

The most beautiful room at The Natural History Museum in Berlin is without a doubt the mineral collection 💎☄️✨
The specimens are exhibited in the old wooden cabinets - and they look amazing! 😱😍

The entryway of the old main building at The Veterinary School 🐎🤩🤩
It was built between 1856-1858 by the famous danish architect Michael Gottlieb Bindesbøll 🏫✨

Repost from @youngmeerim 🐮😎
For the next two months Young will be cleaning and restoring specimens from the veterinary anatomy collections - the first one to get a clean-up is this wax injected head from a cow 💉🐮✨
The specimen is from around 1850 👵🏻

The dried eye of a blue whale 🐋
I’m not sure exactly how this specimen has been made (-which is why I made sure to use gloves while handeling 🙈), but it is quite amazing 😀
The specimen is from 1937 - and named Balaenoptera sibbaldii, today the blue whale is named Balaenoptera musculus 🤓🐋💙

Small bat from 1862...must have been quite difficult to mount such a fragile specimen with these long, thin wing bones 🦇🤓
.
The common noctule (Nyctalus noctula) is a species of bat common throughout Europe, Asia, and North Africa.

My new favorite cabinet! 😍🐍
The parasite collection has been needing a refill for a very long time and now every single specimen has been gone through - and the ones on the picture has been opened, the jars have been cleaned and they have been given new fluids.
The sealing has just dried and they are now back in the collection once again.
So I don’t have to worry about this collection for a while now 😀😀

At the Veterinary School the students are taught the anatomy of domestic animals...and zebras 🦓
Turns out one of the “pony” skeletons in the anatomy room is actually a lost zebra from the zoological collection 🐎🤷🏼‍♀️🦓 😂😂😂

Is it possible for a porpoise and a monkey to become friends? 🤔🤔🤔
The answer is “Yes!” these three friends have been sharing a cabinet in the zoological collection since 1893 🐬🐒🐒💕

Flipper from a harp seal (Pagophilus groenlandicus) - with eight ‘fingers’!- which is three too many 😱
Once in awhile people call the police after finding a decomposing seal flipper on the beach - as the bones looks very similar to a human hand (see last picture) 😬😬

Beautiful wooden box with a loggerhead sea turtle skeleton inside 🎁🐢✨
The skeleton is from 1860 - back then the Latin name was Chelone caouane, today it is Caretta caretta.

Just a little update from the conservation lab 👩🏼‍🔬👩🏼‍🔬✨
It is nice to see how Ida is translating the old specimens into beautiful…feet, parasites and infections 🤔🙈😂😂
