Out and About in LA: The Natural History Museum

With the release of Jurassic World I have been in a bit of a dinosaur binge. When I realized that I am 6 train stops away from a bevy of fossils you know I had to go there. But this place has so much more than dinosaurs; SO MUCH more. So please, enjoy yet another set of pictures from a museum. Specifically:

Miscellaneous

 I feel like the one Walrus laying down is my spirit animal.


Apparently we got big game hunters at the museum.

 Also, big fishers as well.


Very pretty Native American artwork.

 A lot of amateur artists were peppered around the museum. I’m amazed at what people can draw. Although to be fair I cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler.


The start of something big?

Well that’s it everybody. If you excuse me I’m gonna take my gold and go. If you are by the L.A. Coliseum and hear sirens don’t worry about it. It’s just me on the lam.
