“When you grow up as a girl, the world tells you the things that you are supposed to be: emotional, loving, beautiful, wanted. And then when you are those things, the world tells you they are inferior: illogical, weak, vain, empty.”
— Stevie Nicks  (via thatkindofwoman)

Big Bend National Park was established in Texas on this day in 1944.

This beautiful park is the setting for the Museum’s collared peccary diorama, which depicts this distant cousin of the domestic pig. Collared peccaries are sociable and often travel in herds of a dozen or more. Armed with long, tapering canine teeth, collared peccaries are also known as javelinas, from a Spanish word meaning “spear.”

More in the Bernard Family Hall of North American Mammals.
