I was shelving books at the museum today, and I discovered several cool old ones! The top photo is of the gorgeous gold illustrations on the covers of a French mammal anatomy series. The skull from the cougar book, published in the 1940s, is from a cougar shot by Teddy Roosevelt in 1901!

African Harrier Hawk
(Polyboroides typus)

The African harrier hawk is one of only two birds of prey that has double-jointed knees. It uses these joints to hunt animals in cracks and holes in cliffsides and trees. One of its favored foods is the sociable weaver (Geranospiza caerulescen), which creates massive nests with other members of its species. Nom nom nom.

Lead poisoning is one of the biggest threats to California condors on the central coast. A small animal like a ground squirrel that has been shot by a rancher provides a tempting meal for a scavenging condor. But if lead bullets have been used, the condor faces a high risk of lead poisoning. And since they scavenge communally, a single contaminated carcass can poison and kill many condors.
⠀⠀
Ventana Wildlife Society provides free non-lead ammunition to ranchers and farmers in several counties in central California. This kind of work is helping to reduce the impact lead poisoning has on the delicate condor population.
⠀⠀
Fun fact: the juvenile in this illustration, tag number 711, is named Big Gulp. 😄

This illustration is one of several that will be featured at VWS’s new Discovery Center exhibit.
