Bristol’s best kept “secret”…!

SmilodonB

 

You won’t see many prehistoric mammals in this blog… but after last year’s visit to Bristol University I couldn’t resist to take a few pictures and do a restoration of a fantastic Smilodon skeleton mount they (inexplicably, it should be put on display at the museum!) have in the vaults of the the Wills Memorial building, for the exclusive enjoyment of students, teachers and workers. The ferocious attack posture was an inspiration to give it the “Luis Rey treatment”… drama at its (mammalian) best!

Obviously I’m expecting to do a soon restoration of the “perfect” Scelidosaurus they have at the museum.
