NO MEAN FOETUS

Open

If travel – as they say – is the best form of education, and you just happen to find yourself in Maputo, take some time to attach yourself to a very different learning experience at the Natural History Museum. Apart from the displays of animal and marine species natural to Mozambique, this museum also houses a collection – considered internationally unique – of elephant foetuses showing the different stages of gestation. And depending on your perspective, this is either one giant leap for zoology and Maputo, or just a bizarre record of 14 unborn elephants wasted along the way.
