Dr. Paula Cushing has been studying these strange animals for nearly 17 years, and says there is so little known about them, that anyone can discover something new. They're camel spiders: neither camels, nor spiders! So... what are they, anyway?

We've set out from The Field Museum in Chicago to collaborate with the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Check out our first video on the Human Biology Collection: https://youtu.be/shKWGMdvmJQ

And our video with anthropologist Dr. Steve Nash, about their collection of Native American Peace Medals: https://youtu.be/3-AGSdwVQRQ
