Description

Dr. Paula Cushing has been studying these strange animals for nearly 17 years, and says there is so little known about them, that anyone can discover something new. They're camel spiders: neither camels, nor spiders! So... what are they, anyway?

We've set out from The Field Museum in Chicago to collaborate with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Check out our first video on the Human Biology Collection: https://youtu.be/shKWGMdvmJQ

And our video with anthropologist Dr. Steve Nash, about their collection of Native American Peace Medals: https://youtu.be/3-AGSdwVQRQ
