Tomorrow I am heading over to London to spend a few days with John of the Freezers Hutchinson and Vivian Allen at the Royal Veterinary College. We’ll be doing SIMM modelling of giraffe limbs – yay!
You may remember that last year Sebastian Marpmann and I spent two visits to the RVC cutting up giraffe limbs – the by far biggest thing I have ever dissected – under the tutelage of dissection champion John. In case you don’t remember, or wish to see some gory photos of giraffe muscles again, here’s the full link list.
- forelimb intro post
- humeral head and biceps tendon
- biceps and a broken scalpel
- lower forelimb
- hindlimb (plus gratuitous living giraffes)
I’ll be back on Wednesday, hopefully with a lot of cool stuff to tell and loads of photos from London Zoo, which is on for Saturday, probably with one or two other science people.
