After roughly 4,564 trips to New Haven in the last couple years (I'm there more than I'm on the Upper West Side!), I still hadn't been to the Peabody Museum of Natural History -- until last Saturday. It's relatively small (manageable) and totally great. Making things even cooler, most of the dinosaurs were dug up on Yale expeditions. Can you imagine? Mom: How's class this semester. Kid: Pretty good. We found a triceratops on Wednesday. They also have one freakin' huge, three-legged turtle (one was bitten off, he wasn't born a tri-ped) and a load of amazing birds. Here are some creepy, yet pretty close ups of those guys.
