I really love how they filled in the rest of the indricotherium with wire. Also called baluchitherium or "beast of Baluchistan," this extinct giant of the rhino family has always been one of my favorites. Here's an idea of how big the real ones were. I'm sorry that my best photo of it has a narwhal or some early version of it diving through the animal's heart. I really enjoyed the museum. It has to be one of the best Natural History museums in the world, although it's clearly lacking in tapir material! I'll post more on the tapirs later on the tapir blog. Even with several hours, there were many rooms we never got to see, so it's possible we'll go back since we have the visitor pass. We spent the rest of the day walking toward the bus route in the drizzle, seeing one small bit of Penn Station, riding the bus up to the museum, seeing lots of animal-related displays and also the planetarium, having carrot cake in one of the museum cafes (yumm!), discovering a market packed with delectible goodies (thanks to Stephen), eating, and taking the bus back down to our hotel. It felt like a big day. Central Park was absolutely gorgeous and green in the spring foliage and spring rain, but we only hovered on the edge because our goals were elsewhere today. Tomorrow I hope to see a lot more of it. It was a wonderful day, and we're truly loving it here! It feels soooooo different than when I was here in the late 1960s, and I like the changes.
