for me it's 2:45 in the morning, and I just come from my travel to Florence, well soon I'll go to sleep, and just tomorrow tell a bit more about ornithology....
but I can anticipate that i saw one Nestor productus, the only Italian exemplar (of course stuffed)
one couple of Heteralocha acutirostris, quite good taxidermic stuffed
also the stones used by the Dinornis to destroy the green food,
pieces of Dinornis egg (very little) and two or three feathers of Dinornis
also one stuffed Kakapo (a bit in strange position, standing like a pinguine) and the extinct Conuropsis carolinensis.
There was also a Thylacine (male)
I saw the giant Japanese salamander (Andrias japonicus) and a curious stuffed Hippopotamus of the XVIII century, who lived in the Grand Duke's menagerie
About such museum I'll write an illustrated reportage for some ornothological sites here in Italy....well the text will be in my language, but will be about 50 inedited images of quite rare birds and mammals; when finished I'll give you here the link!
then I also saw alive birds at many breeders, about all tomorrow
