I've no idea how old this picture is but I think it's one of the most beautiful photos I've seen. It can't have been around long, as it pops up now in the images section for the search term 'Tasmanian wolf pictures', and believe me I've looked at those results many, many times over the years.

Anyway here it is;

The museum of natural history in New York City is a curious place if you ever go looking for the Tasmanian tiger specimen. I've tried twice, and on both occasions found myself in the presence of mystified museum workers who'd never heard any of the names I listed, and on both occasions gave me the "wait here, I'll go check" routine while they connected with higher level museum staff, always returning back to say they had no specimen, even in a back room or storage area.

The page not found message is quite ironic for me.

Here it is Human,

I get a bit (very) confused about who's got what where too.

I went to that museum in December, it was shockingly bad. The staff were literally clueless about everything. I had trouble trying to find one of the famous signature exhibits, but out of the four staff I asked nobody knew what I was talking about!

I think it's just a thing with that museum in general; the staff couldn't care less.
