Hey! Hey you! Want to hold a whale vertebra? Touch an otter? Compare a cobra to a rattlesnake? Ask us how we got here? How your science-inclined kid can professionalized their passion? Let's talk! The Vertebrate Museum at Southeastern Louisiana University does quite a bit of outreach. At minimum, you will find us and a few of our specimens at each major campus event. Left to Right : Brie Myre, Danielle Wasserman, Jill Gautreaux, João Faísca Pereira and Eric Strickland.

Oh look! It's visiting researcher slash ichthyological supergenius, Paulina Diaz! With us for a few months from the Autonomous University of Baja California, Mexico.
