Today we went to the Alfred Denny Museum. It's in the University of Sheffield, and you have to tell them you want to come. It's an animal museum. It's called zoology, and there are lots and lots and lots of creatures. There are some sponges and corals, and there was a dead person, and an ostrich and there was a snake and a hedgehog and a squirrel and an armadillo and a porcupine and bullfrogs and chicken embryos, and lots of other creatures.
This is half a squirrel. It has fur on one side, and it has bones on the other side. It's for students to learn what's inside the creatures. There was also half a seal, half a mole, half a bat, half a porpoise, half a hedgehog and half a bullfrog.
This is a little ichthyosaur. They had a cast of a fossil pterodactyl - the grown up and the babies are in the pictures below.
This is a terror bird. Can you see that eye? That's just a made up eye. The terror bird lived about 62-2 million years ago. It couldn't fly, but it grew taller than a person, and it was super dangerous. I had a really, really, really, really good time, and I want to go back another day.
Hello, my name is Toby. I am five years old, and I want to be a palaeontologist. I really like fossils, so I'm writing down everything I do with fossils! My Mummy is doing the typing until I'm a bit older, but she writes everything I say.
