Rotterdam Daily Photo: Throwback thursday, the Beagle has landed

Again, one from the archives. Taken in 2010 at Blijdorp Zoo. An impression of the ship the Beagle with which from 1831 Darwin studied local animals, plants, fossils and geology in, among others, South America, Australia, the south of Africa and various island groups in the Pacific and Indian Ocean. In the cabinet you can open the drawers and see examples of specimens he studied. Recommended when you visit Rotterdam!
