February 6, 2012 Centaur of Tymfi

The "Centaur of Tymfi" stands proudly on display at Tucson's International Wildlife Museum. Also on display are the bones of a cyclops, a griffin and a unicorn.

What? You don't believe me? Look at the image. It really is on display.

Entitled "Mythological Wildlife," the exhibit aims to make folks think about how we know what is real.
Hmmm. How do we know?

Once upon a time, mythology was science, accepted as part of the natural history world as perceived by the ancients.

Imagine how it must have seemed when they saw a man on horseback for the first time. They didn't see two different creatures. They saw one new and scary creature and called it a centaur.

The skull of a prehistoric elephant called a mastodon, tipped on its side, might resemble the skull of a one-eyed giant they named a cyclops.

And don't forget the "jackalope"...

Pictures of real jackalopes make me cry.
Have to remember to post that in the "Jackalopes That Make You Cry" thread.

They are limited to the western U.S., so you'll have to travel far to see one IRL.

infinite monkey  Wednesday Feb 8 11:52 AM

Like, maybe, having Italians standing there with magnifying glasses?

classicman  Wednesday Feb 8 11:58 AM

Shuddup! I just found out I need bifocals...

wtf? When did I get THAT old? :'(

glatt  Wednesday Feb 8 12:23 PM

CooperVision Biofinity Multifocal contact lenses. They are wonderful.

classicman  Wednesday Feb 8 01:48 PM

Thanks glatt ... I'll ask about them. My problem is that although I wear contacts when active, I hate to wear them everyday. They rotate and irritate my left eye. I have scar tissue from an injury years ago. My eye has scar tissue in it which created a "bump." Contacts usually don't stay in the proper place on the eyeball itself.

glatt  Wednesday Feb 8 01:54 PM

Too bad. These are good contact lenses, but they are still contact lenses.

Oh, and I enthusiastically second SPUCK'S remarks, Bigger fonts, please. TIA!

SPUCK  Friday Feb 10 06:35 AM

LOL. I misspelled it then started to correct it. Then decided what-the-hell, leave it and see if anyone notices.

I should've known better with this crow.

BigV  Friday Feb 10 11:00 AM

You're a crow?
