    Megatherium Americanum

    With your ticket you will also get access to the paleontological museum (on the right side of the museum) with exposition of dinosaurie (copies) and one important finding of a skeleton of a "Megatherium Americanum", found in Argentina in 1788. It was brought to Madrid and mounted as the first mammal fósil. It was also the first fósilized extincted animal that was classified in the Linnean sexual system. The animal was a leaf eater and its height was 6 meters.
    This huge animal skeleton is the most valuable in the museum and one of the most important in the world!!

    Group of lobos attacking wild boar

    The collections in this museum shows the fauna mediterrainian, specially from the Iberic penisula.
    The animals have been collected and studied for more than 200 years. In the museum there are more than six millions examples.
    I will specially rekommend the mounting of wild animals, mostly in very natural and lively poses.
    In the museum there is also a special exposition of the Iberic lobo, and the fight for its existens on location.
    With your ticket you will also get access to the paleontological museum (on the right side of the museum) with exposition of dinosaurie (copies) and one important finding of a skeleton of a "Megatherium Americanum", found in Argentina in 1788.

    Taningia danae 1931

    In the museum there is an interresting exposition about the existence of great calamares in the deep sea. There is also a one hour long film to be seen about investigations so far, for those that have special interest in this mythical animal.
