Remains of the Night

Something got this bat, or else something else (a car?) got it and then something ate of it. I’m struck by the delicate structure of the rib cage.

The entomologist and curator Alex Wild said this on Twitter yesterday after the disaster in Brazil: “The loss of the Brazilian National Museum to a preventable fire? This is very much the future of science and museums in the United States if people like Trump succeed in holding power. Every spare cent eventually funneled away from public goods into the oligarchs’ pockets.”
