Treasures of the museums of the province : in Bordeaux the fable of the animals

Nathalie Memory, director of the Muséum de Bordeaux, likes to surprise, stimulate curiosity. Before guiding the user in the nooks and crannies of his institution during a video program of half an hour this Friday, may 22, to 18h - in partnership with Le Figaro, Facebook France, the network CLICK.France's digital initiatives, in museums, and the magazine connaissance des arts, it reveals a first cause of wonder : a tiny field mouse at the foot of an elephant. This wink of eye to Jean de La Fontaine and his fables so loved zoologists is made from the entrance of the Museum, by the presence of two stuffed specimens. Nathalie Memory déambulera then window display installations, in the discovery of much more evidence that nature is wonderful (here, between the walls creamy this Hotel Lisleferme recently restored, in a million preserved specimens 3500 are exposed by rotation).

On display are also a few conservative colleagues, who will speak about the initiative " Museum home ", a device is roaming during a pandemic. It is a "cart educational" to show the parts out of their reserves or their display, for an experience of the object increased, detailed, and more sensitive.

Take the Aldabra tortoise, at the beginning of the course permanent. His huge size amazes. It raises awareness of the diversity of sizes observed within a same species group. Originally from the Seychelles, it is considered the largest in the world, a male can weigh up to 300 kg. She could also live up to 200 years...

Another story, another lesson : the tortoise to the hare, here's the one of Europe, renowned for its speed. If one is not a hunter or moralistic one will learn that it is different from the rabbit mainly for its size and the ears larger. But still, contrary to this cousin, he does not dig burrows, raising its little on the floor.

later an exhibition entitled "Eat me, if you can !" is based on the work of C. M. Yonge. In 1828, the famous zoologist in the uk has the first animals to be distinguished according to whether they feed from food, solid or liquid, mobile, or inert, large or small. Tell me what you dévores I would tell you that you're in sum. And if the habit does not make the monk, the lunches says a lot about what we are ! Take another turtle, the Malaclemmyde concentric. She has no teeth, but jaw cornea sharp edges in the form of a short beak. This is very useful for this species native to the eastern United States, where it swallows the small crustaceans and molluscs, which she loves. She keeps them in her mouth in order to crush them, dismissing then, thanks to his camera, chewing the parts that are too hard to be swallowed.

Pinned to the breast of the wonderful and fragile collection of butterfly of night, the Psodos quadrifaria commonly called Ribbon fawn is adapted to the lives of more than 1200 meters of altitude. Her black dress allows her to absorb light and warm up faster. Intelligence, being the capacity of adaptation according to the ethologists, we humans would we be less than these humble species ?
