This Struthiomimus was a theropod, meaning that it walked upright on two legs! Come see it for yourself in NHMLA's Dinosaur Hall! 📷: @starsgraphy #HowDoYouMuseum

Happy #ValentinesDay! 💕 Today we’re looking into the bizarre breeding biology of amorous alligator lizards. 🦎 The males of this species use their massive jaw muscles to bite and hold on to the heads of females during mating, sometimes for up to 31 hours! These local lovers can be seen in action all over SoCal in the coming months, so keep an eye out for lizards in love and tag any pictures #NatureinLA so our scientists can document and study them!

One cutie, two cuties.. wait, there's three! Bring your littles down for a day full of adventure at the NHMLA! 🦓 🐯 📷: @antigeneric #HowDoYouMuseum

Naturally, we selected Galápagos finches from our Ornithology collection in honor of #DarwinDay. Diversity in beak form and function among these island-dwelling birds helped Darwin develop his theory of natural selection. 🐦

As L.A.’s distinctive style spreads throughout the world, Sleeps sees how important it is to bring the history back home.

Tomorrow, tebori tattoo master @horishige will be demonstrating traditional Japanese tattooing in the #tattoonhmla Parlor. In tebori tattooing, a horishi (tattooer) uses a wooden or metal stick with a set of needles fastened to its end to deposit ink into the skin. The process is done entirely by hand, without the aid of rotary and coil machines common in tattoo parlors today. 📷: @horishige / Matt Trudeau
