Tori Tomson, Christina Prody, Cadan Campbelland Mindy Wiederhoft, from the School of the Osage, listen to Brandon Pope present a rodent’s skull and how to categorize it Thursday afternoon in the Anheuser-Busch Natural Resources Building. Pope is a MU graduate student in Fisheries and Wildlife Sciences.

School of the Osage students learned about categorizing animals Thursday at MU. The students also looked at various taxidermy collections in the building, walked around campus and ate ice cream after their official tour.

A collection of animal skulls sits on a table in a lab in MU’s Anheuser-Busch Natural Resources Building Thursday afternoon. Groups of school children spend part of their half-hour tour talking about ways to categorize the skulls, making note of the various types of teeth.
