    Recently, I have been somewhat obsessed with assembling a species list of the specimens held at the Paris natural history museum. Having been multiple times, I have assembled a decent library of photos but couldn't remember many additional species. I have posted my list as complete as I can get it down below, but I was wondering if anyone else had had this idea before me and assembled a species list. A list for either of the Grande Galerie de L'evolution or la Galerie d'anatomie comparee et de paleontologie would be fantastic, and for both would be out of this world. I'm not expecting anybody to have done it of course - it is an immense task. At any rate, I will try to compile one myself on my next visit. Here is my very incomplete list based on photos and focusing almost uniquely on the large mammals given I only really took photos of them:

    The above is by no means complete - I concentrated on taxa I hadn't seen specimens of before, and those which were well preserved and presented. Taxonomy is corrected in many cases.

    Wow! Thank you so much! I was definitely not expecting a list at all, but you just turned up with it all! I'll still have to go and take a few notes, but it matters not! Thank you so much, I can't tell you how useful this is :)
    It seems you have missed off the same kind of species as I would have, so I reckon I really wouldn't have much work to do after this! :)

    That's a very comprehensive list; well done.

    It's some years since I was last in Paris but the "Grande Galerie" also included the mounted skin of the famous Asiatic elephant "Siam" who lived in Vincennes Zoo for many years.

    And the extinct taxa exhibition included the sleleton of a Kangaroo Island emu.

    Great job..I'm a former keeper and spent years in wildlife fields..loved this place especially palaeontology displays..Nice to be able to see some specimens up close without glass and bad lighting hint hint smilodon fatalis dumped in dark corner in London.. the grand gallery I only look at for WEKE the giant squid, most specimens are not preserved with resin method..was v impressed..Nice to see an A.dux as it would have been..not floppy!..also the extinct Hall as someone said..v rare specimens..only king island emu skeleton in the world, only one skin exists too I think..the anatomy museum is great..when you train to be a keeper now on the UK to be qualified have to do two years intense study. Part of it Sparsholt college..you have an anatomy class their where an enthusiastic teacher who does it as a hobby also, dissects something interesting..they have a special cupboard with the weird, unusual, and anomaly specimens...paris museum had a few v weird ones....Great job..I recorded zoo tours, even before being a keeper..and also do museums like you....bravo..your list is helping me decide to spend a lot of money on a 2nd trip...paris prices suck
