- The shell of a turtle is divided into two pieces: the carapace and the plastron. The carapace is on top and is what we normally think of as the turtle shell. The plastron is the underside and they are connected. This is why it is important to never pick up a turtle by its shell! 🐢🐢🐢#turtletuesday #urmuseums
- Stop by for our "Artists' Conversation" with Eric Rodenbeck and Tiffany Holmes in Camp Concert Hall from 6-8pm! There will be a reception and viewing of the exhibition "Crooked Data: (Mis)Information in Contemporary Art"
- This is called a field jacket used by paleontologists to remove fragile fossils from the rock matrix in the field. The fossil fragments are wrapped in aluminum foil then layers of canvas and plaster. Once they are removed from the earth they can be carefully excavated further. These are fossil fragments of a Glyptops plicatulus. #turtletuesday #urmuseums
- Wulfenite (PbMoO4) is a lead mineral occurring in a flat, square crystal system. It is typically bright yellow or yellow-orange and is found in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia. #mineralmonday #urmuseums
