Oh yeah, and some batteries for my camera so I can download all of these exciting photos that I need to blog about might come in handy too.
So while I'm combining Science with my craft blogging, I may as well share with you these. As regular followers of this blog may know, I just love it when art and science combine, and I have particular respect for people who go out of their way to make their art anatomically accurate.

Cute but creepy!
