Grant Museum of ZoologyUniversity College London's Grant Museum of Zoology houses around 62,000 specimens amounting to a diverse natural history collection covering the whole of the animal kingdom. Founded in 1827, the museum retains an air of the avid Victorian collector with cases packed full of skeletons, mounted animals and specimens preserved in fluid. Endangered or extinct animals in the collection include the Dodo, the Thylacine (or Tasmanian Wolf), and the Quagga - one of only seven skeletons of the extinct zebra-like creature in the world. Not for the squeamish, but fascinating none the less, are Sir Victor Negus's collection of bisected heads.
