cinnamonhellen Carolina Parakeet from a few months ago came back from the taxidermist! Now beautifully mounted and very life-like! The only native species of parrot to the USA, now extinct. #workflow #romtoronto #museumlife #ornithology #carolinaparakeet #parrot #northamerican #usa #extinct #taxidermy #birds #carolina #parakeet #naturalhistory #specimen 2w

cinnamonhellen New Green Moray eel in the Grouper tank! #ripleys #aquarium. These guys are super amazing at hiding in the big shark tank, now you can get a closer look! They are sedentary hunters, waiting for prey to pass by. Mistaken for appearing vicious, they open and close their mouths to suck in oxygen from the water that passes through their gills - much like some sharks. Largest Green Moray was 8 feet long and weighed 65lbs! #marinelife #ocean #sea #coral #coralreef #greenmoray #moray #eel #toronto #predator #notsodangerous 1mon

cinnamonhellen Alright take 2 this is a two-headed Brown-headed Cowbird made from TWO individual cowbird species as a "joke" by one of our technicians! This specimen is NOT natural, had a hard time figuring it out because the associated label went missing! Nonetheless, Cowbirds are the most common "brood parasite" species in North America. Females lay eggs in over 220 host bird species! Their eggs will hatch sooner giving their young an advantage when in the nest of other birds. However, birds like the Yellow Warbler have learned to recognize Cowbird eggs, and will build a new nest over the parasite egg. Oldest recorded individual of this species was 16 years and 10 months old! #cowbird #notreal #looksveryreal #twobirds #notnatural #joke #museumfun #museumlife #workflow #notags #notafreakofnature #brownheaded #northamerica #america #canada #birds #ornithology #romtoronto #naturalhistory #wehavefuntoo #taxidermy #weird 1mon

cinnamonhellen Can you guess what species this little guy is? Found him sitting tamely at High Park - he's also 16 years old!!! He's a hybrid duck, part Mallard and part we-have-no-idea #highpark #toronto #lakeshore #hybrid #mallard #hybridduck #duck #16yearsold #tame #waterfowl #cutie #chilling #nature #park #downtown #TO #hiking #pond #lake 1mon

cinnamonhellen This is the majestic look of freedom! They look funny when photographed from the front! in 1782, the Bald Eagle became the national bird in the USA, and was adopted onto the Great Seal of the United States. The Turkey was the other contender - and equally majestic in my opinion to be a national bird. #looksfunnyfrthefront #freedom #murica #america #usa #unitedstates #baldeagle #eagle #notreallyfree #taxidermy #collection #specimen #research #museum #workflow #naturalhistory #ornithology #majestic #turkey #nationalbird 2mon

cinnamonhellen Doesn't he have the cutest face!? This adorable guy is a Labrador Duck. Found along the east coast from New Jersey and northward. They became extinct in 1878, the cause has never been fully explained. Human encroachment and depletion of costal resources all played a roll in their demise. #ultimateduckface #duckface #epic #laborador #duck #cutie #extinct #Camptorhynchus #laboradorius #specimen #1878 #extinction #museum #collections #romrevealed #naturalhistory #workflow 2mon
