Freezersaurus Gets a Makeover
April 19, 2012 by John of the Freezers
Much prettier now!
With the help of Heinrich Mallison of dinosaurpalaeo and his student Sebastian Marpmann (now having finished the Great Giraffe Deconstruction), I did a quick cleanup and reorganization of the big walk-in freezer we’ve all come to know and love as Freezersaurus. This had to be done because some of the big stuff was becoming a terrible obstacle to cross in order to get anything from inside; cue health-and-safety paperwork nightmares. And yes, the ice penis is now gone. End of an era…
All photos henceforth by Doktor Mallison:
Emerging from Freezersaurus; most big stuff removed (note our giraffe's metacarpus trying to escape, on right side)
The big stuff. Emus, elephant feet, too much giraffe (metacarpus continuing to sidle away), and horse legs.
Carnage remaining inside; needed to be taken out gradually and reorganized, to make more space on floor for intermittent human presence (i.e. walking in).
Elephant feet, mystery giraffe pelvis, oh my!
For ME!?!? Aww shucks, you shouldn't have. Reorganizing the small stuff on shelves. PhD student Mike Pittman makes a guest appearance, delivering crocodile vertebrae.
Sebastian poses with giraffe buddy. We emphasize the Buddy System when dealing with Freezersaurus; she is a treacherous hostess. Note that Sebastian has also cunningly halted the abscondence of the giraffe metacarpus.
Job done! Farewell Freezersaurus! You look mahvelous! Wall of archosaurs on the left; wall of synapsids on the right, and sundry giant mammals in the middle.
And so we finished, and so you’ve now had a very intimate look at Freezersaurus too! Don’t you feel lucky? :)
