After going through security, the first thing we saw was a giant dinosaur.
And this beautiful elephant.
The Christmas tree in this museum. There were trees in every museum that we went to.
Jordan loved this T-Rex. He has a desire to be a palentologist...a dinosaur scientist.
A Triceratops, another of his favourites.
He spent a lot of time examining this exhibit.
The boys in front of a dinosaur skull. It was huge.
A beautiful diorama.
Prehistoric sea creatures.
Skeleton of a giant sea turtle.
More sea creatures.
After that we moved to another section of the museum and saw this giant termite hill. It was huge.
As we moved into the mammal section, we looked up and saw this tiger about to pounce. The boys loved it.
A silverback gorilla.
Beautiful male lion.
A giraffe, drinking. This was awesome.
The biggest porcupine I've ever seen. When my grandparents moved 2 hours north of here when I was 12, porcupines were often spotted in the pine tree in front of the farmhouse. None so big as this one though.
Next to the US Horticultural Building, this was Brandon's favourite museum. Of course, it was Jordan's favourite. After this we had a bit of time left, so decided to go back to the American History Museum. I will post photos from that visit tomorrow if blogger will cooperate.
