Crocodile on the move!

Packing at Wakefield Museum is close to completion, but there was one job too big for our Collections Team to tackle alone - moving the Waterton Collection, including a large cayman crocodile!

Specialist conservation movers were called in to pack and move the beast which will be going back on display in the new museum - under the floor!  See this posting for more details.

The cayman is free from its case!  Seeing it (and its teeth!) this close-up  makes it clear what a powerful and dangerous animal this was!

Specialist packers tame the monster!

All packed up - for now!
