#MineralMonday: Calcite specimen from Quanshi, Quilin, China. These small stalactites are made up of tiny calcite crystals that grew as water, containing dissolved minerals, dripped from the roof of a cave. #mineralspecimen #minerals #geology #naturalhistorymuseum #nmnh

Eastern Lubber Grasshopper, Romalea microptera. Despite its name, these landlubbers are poor jumpers and can't fly. Their bright colors are a warning - predators that eat the grasshopper usually vomit up the spiny creature before their digestive juices begin to work. #grasshopper #insectzoo #naturalhistorymuseum #nmnh

Not a picky eater: the Northern Raccoon can eat just about anything! Their diet ranges from fruits and plants of all kinds, to garbage and frogs. #cutebutsmelly #extremecloseup #mammals #HallofMammals #NMNH

#FossilFriday: As part of our #Wilderness50 exhibit, visit the #BistiBeast, a Bistahieversor skull on loan from @mypubliclands! The partial skeleton was discovered in 1997, by a volunteer fossil researcher named Paul Sealey, during a weekend excursion in the 40,000-acre Bisti/De-Na-Zin #Wilderness in northwestern #NewMexico. #fossils #dinosaurs #bornwild #yourwilderness
