Skulls with soul

Thoughtful gibbon at the Grant's

Some bones just give you a look. It is often the primates, but some skulls seemespecially expressive, and just catch your attention.

This "enigmatic gibbon" is the Grant Museum blog specimen of the week. and I can't stop looking at it. It is like it is begging for a returned glance of mutual understanding.

He reminds me of an immature gorilla at the Oxford University Museum of Natural History.

An archaeologist friend assures me that some skulls "smile".

I won't say more. I will just gaze into the engaging eye sockets of these beauties.
