Scanning a femur at the Virginia Museum of Natural History.

 My most recent trip to the Virginia Museum of Natural History was in early October 2013, where I gave a public lecture. Among the items I scanned in the physical type collection was a femur (left) of a cat.  I scanned a number of other femurs that will be posted in the coming days.
