May 2014

hhs0514-1At our May meeting we were entertained by Hank van Leeuwen who is an osteologist / taxidermist who has a very large collection of skeletons from dinosaurs and reptiles through to zoo animals. Hank’s talk was very different from our normal guest speakers topics. It was one of the most interesting we have had. He is a very engaging person and spoke in some detail about how he deals with the various aspects of taxidermy and the different techniques of preserving skeletons. This was a fascinating talk and the members had lots of questions. For more detail of Hank’s talk see the next issue of the Broadhead News.
