Today’s peek into the archives takes us to the beach!
“Alligator walking on beach, Cape Romano, Florida, 1907" was photographed by Julian A. Dimock, and is part of the Museum’s collection of over 3,400 images taken by Dimock in the United States in the early part of the 20th century from about 1904 to 1911. He traveled the Southern states on Museum funded trips to Southern locations like The Everglades. Carrying heavy and cumbersome photographic equipment over challenging terrain, Dimock trained his lens on the people and landscape of the South, to great effect.

Caterpillar appears as a snake for camouflage
The snake caterpillar cleverly camouflages itself as a slithering snake and comes with a head that looks like a snake. The snake caterpillar, in its larval state before becoming a moth, will also strike harmlessly if approached, just as a snake would, with the exception of a potential bite. (more)
