You guessed it: a dead zebra!
Since it’s Caturday, you all know what that means: let’s watch a video!
In this interesting video, we visit Anna Goldman, a mammals preparator at Chicago’s Field Museum, and we watch as she dissects and prepares part of a dead zebra, Equus grevyi, for the museum’s permanent collection.
As you will see in this video, we are clearly watching two professionals at work (WARNING: some scenes in this video may cause some people to cringe):
The Field Museum is on twitter: @FieldMuseum
Emily Graslie, star of The Brain Scoop, is also on twitter: @Ehmee

GrrlScientist can also be found here: Maniraptora. She’s very active on twitter @GrrlScientist and sometimes lurks on social media: facebook, G+, LinkedIn, and Pinterest.
