a zed & two noughts

Time lapse created by London’s Natural History Museum showing a great green macaw, a tawny owl and a mountain peacock-pheasant decomposing to skeletons with the help of flesh-eating beetles.
Chemical preparation of skeletons can cause damage to the bones so a special beetle species, Dermestes haemarrhoidalis, is used to strip off the flesh while leaving the bones and collagen untouched.
