Description / Treasures of the Natural History Museum

A lovely, easy to carry book that celebrates some of the Museum's most exceptional natural history objects, including world-famous specimens and little-known curiosities.

Among them are a rare meteorite from Mars, Charles Darwin's celebrated finch specimens, a lethal claw once belonging to the dinosaur Baryonyx and some immaculately dressed fleas. Each treasure has been selected for its scientific importance, striking beauty or intriguing story - and sometimes all three.

Please note: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people should be aware that this book contains images and names of deceased persons.
