Short Trip to Raffles Museum

One day, I went to Science Library to print something and since I still have some time, Wen Qing led me to the Raffles Museum. Before that, we visit a small green patch with labelled plants. In the Raffles Museum, we could see some real specimens and also some artificial specimens. The museum is not more than two room wide, but they definitely spent time to collect all the specimens and labelled them with information. There were mammals, birds... and plants...

Most of them are real fur:

And this is a monkey and a cat that was crashed by car in accident, but they managed to preserve it very well... Scientist now are really good in mummifying.
