LARGE SNAKE SKELETON
This dramatic display case contains the expertly prepared and presented skeleton of an unidentified snake species. The endless ranks of fine rib bones are exquisitely perfect, as are the delicate bones of the small skull; curled back on itself several times, it indicates an overall length much greater than the 45 1/2 x 19 1/2 inch wood and perspex case in which it is presented.
