So for the past few weeks I’ve been camping in the Ardèche region in southern France. There was a nice little museum just a couple of miles from where I was staying. Le Muséum de l’Ardèche is the located in the small village Balazuc (which is also worth a visit). Most of the pieces were collected by Bernard Riou, a French Palaeontologist. Some pictures: Fossil insects from the Plateau du Coiron. Fossils from this location (about an hour away from Balazuc) are amazing. My favourite insect at the Museum: Nice Millipede Fossil frogs and toads from the same location Fishes, also from the same location. There also is an antelope skull on the wall, and they even have a complete skeleton of one. Very nice to see. Skeleton of a boar-like animal. How much better does it get? Well, much better: Of course, there are many more fossils from this location, including turtles, snakes, birds, leaves, pine cones… On to the next part...
