Anaconda Boxcavation

Last week at the annual Burke Museum Behind the Scenes Night we excavated the skeleton of a yellow anaconda. We acquired the anaconda from the Woodland Park Zoo, and we skinned the snake at the 2013 Behind the Scenes Night.

Mike Etnier from Boxcavations helped with the logistics, which involved burying the snake in a box of sand and storing it for the last year. You can watch the entire excavation process on youtube
