These two lovely specimens are from the Oxford Natural History museum, which is filled with a lot of weird and wonderful things in Victorian glass cabinets and absolutely no interactive displays for school children.

I love museums like that. If I had my own museum, it would be something like a cross between the Pitt Rivers museum, the Horniman and the V&A. And I would fill it with all my favourite kinds of things, starting with strange beetles with really long arms.
