And, in many instances the tradition extends into a zoologist's home life as
well. If we had basements in Texas, my wife would relegate me and my
collections to the bowels of the house. Lacking a basement, I am allowed to
use odd, out-of-the-way corners where visitors rarely look. I think that it
may have something to do with the time the minister came to visit and my
skull collection was spread out of the dining room table....
