A Glyptodont You Can Ride In

Jardin des Plantes, Paris ~ October 14, 2008

I love the realism of these extinct and endangered animals on the Dodo Carousel. There was a plaque next to the carousel explaining what each animal was and giving the scientific name. After all, the Jardin des Plantes is one of the homes of the science of zoology as we know it. The glyptodont is an extinct relative of the armadillo.
