More dead animals with a story in Rotterdam

Filed under: Animals by Orangemaster @ 11:19 am

The Natural History Museum in Rotterdam has an ongoing exhibition entitled ‘Dead Animals with a Story’ (use the Google translate function at your own risk) and has just announced a new addition, the small beech marten that died taking down the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland in May 2016.

Some well-known exhibits include the Dutch ‘domino sparrow’ that was killed indoors to avoid a disaster at the Dutch annual Domino Day where records attempts are made, as well as the ‘McFlurry hedgehog’ that suffocated on a discarded junk food container.

Dead deer eaten by prey YouTube hit

Filed under: Animals by Orangemaster @ 7:00 am

From the beautiful, rich yet small village of Ooij East of the Netherlands comes a website where you can watch how a deer gets eaten by other animals. Follow this link for at least 10 films.

In the first week of its existence, the www.dooddoetleven.nl website (roughly, ‘death comes alive’) was visited about 200,000 times. Watch 24oranges help with those figures! The films show buzzards, crows and magpies picking away at a dead deer. YouTubecurrently has these films in its Top 10.
