These records do not reflect the Field Museum’s current viewpoint but rather the social attitudes and circumstances of the time period when specimens were collected or cataloged.

We welcome feedback. The web database is not a complete record of the Museum’s zoological holdings, and documentation for specimens will vary due to when and how they were collected as well as how recently they were acquired.
