Happy #DolphinDay! Did you know that dolphins—along with porpoises—are whales? In fact, the killer whale is the largest dolphin! Like other mammals, dolphins give birth to live young and breathe air, surfacing regularly to breathe through the blowhole on the top of their heads. Dolphins and commercially lucrative tuna tend to feed in the same area on the same prey, putting dolphins at risk of indiscriminate fishing. Despite efforts in the U.S. and internationally to prevent it, potential species loss and disruption of marine populations are ongoing concerns. #amnh #insideamnh

The Jelly Dome opens tomorrow! Jellies astound scientists with their unique capacity to pulse through the sea, regenerate, and even glow. Environmental changes like warming seas threaten countless species, yet these very changes drive the rapid growth of jelly populations around the world. Dive into the world of jellies and experience a day in the life of these astonishing animals. #jellyfish #milsteinscienceseries #jellydome #insideamnh #amnh

Egyptian coffins often were customized; the name of the person who died was written on the lid in hieroglyphs. The scene at the top of this coffin shows the god Thoth introducing the deceased man to the god Osiris. But the area above the man’s head, where his name should be, is blank. This coffin probably was purchased from a coffin shop, not specially commissioned, and the name of the person inside was never added. #mummies #amnh #insideamnh ©AMNH/C. Chesek

This rock solidified from a basaltic magma within a few hundred meters of the surface, probably beneath a volcano. It cooled rapidly, giving it a fine-grained, peppery appearance. The black mineral is pyroxene, and the white one is plagioclase. #MineralMonday #insideamnh #amnh
