May 11th 2010. We went to Liverpool to sketch the Rhino skull and Horse skeleton they have at the Museum.  At Chester station they currently have one of the Rhino's outside, the lady bug. Whilst waiting outside the George and Dragon I saw the purple and pink baby Rhino being driven passed but didn't have time to grab my camera before it had gone. We were lucky enough to be taken behind the scenes at the museum because the horse skeleton is not on display. It was an amazing thing to see and a real help with the anatomy of the Rhino as the Horse and Rhino have the same body plan. Nando's pudding yum...
