The Field Museum presents Extreme Mammals (or meet the Indricotherium)
What are the three typical characteristics of mammals? If you said having hair, possessing three middle ear bones, and being warm-blooded, then you can go to the front of the line because you've got a head start on many of us. If you got hair and being warm-blooded but totally flubbed the three middle ear bones component, then I've got a really interesting learning experience to recommend to you. Side note: Three middle ear bones? I totally did not know this. You too? Yes? Anybody? Last Wednesday, my three year-old Colin and I had a chance to check out the brand new Extreme Mammals exhibit at the Field Museum. This is really unusual and interesting exhibit (trust me when I tell you that you've never heard of many of the animals featured here)...
