Invertebrates, rocks & fossils of all sizes

The Invertebrate Zoology & Geology department (also known as “IZ&G“) has painstakingly stabilized two and a half million specimens over the past several months – ranging from jars of spindly sea spiders to geological treasures that are millions – even billions – of years old. To prepare for moving, the collection handlers have crafted thousands of custom-made cushions (like the ones below, center) to accommodate all the odd shapes and sizes.
