Road kill

OK, I admit it, I watch for road kill.  So do plenty of other people who are associated with the museum.  Wildlife does not fare well when there are millions of cars traveling at high speeds.  But most people do not even notice.  The only good thing for us is that it can sometimes mean a specimen with data.  But of course, you have to notice it, and you have to stop, go back, and pick it up (and you have to hope it hasn’t been destroyed).  That can mean picking the right time to make a dash in the break between the millions of speeding cars.
