  • Mastodon and on and on…A moving story
    Allington-Jones, L.
    Journal of Natural Science Collections, Volume 5, pages 110 - 114

    This is the latest chapter in the history of the mastodon (Mammut americanum (Kerr, 1792)) specimen on display at the Natural History Museum (NHM) in London (UK), and continues from the story told by Lindsay (1991). The specimen was selected to be one of the new exhibits for the Wonder Bays of the refurbished Hintze Hall, at the heart of the Waterhouse building. Residing, until recently, on open display in a different exhibition space, the
    mastodon required stabilisation and careful dismantling before transportation and reassembly in its new site.
