    Anyone care to guess where I saw these beauties? Hint: They are made of glass.

    I would have to read all of your recent posts to see where you've been :wink:

    Sorry, I meant Silica type glass! They are at The Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge Mass. and were made in Dresden Germany by genius artist duo. in the mid 1800's. And for some more blown glass critters, to compare to your live critter sightings, go to:
