A Literal Curiosity
Free

The Zoo & Logical Times is proud to present a World Exclusive exhibition at Hull Maritime Museum. The perfectly well preserved remains of a creature, previously unknown in the annals of zoology, have been recently discovered in this very city. Preliminary tests have zoologists scratching their heads in wonder as we pose the question what is it?

These potentially earthshaking remains are on their way to the British Museum for extensive analysis, but until then the people of Hull are invited to view the creature and offer their opinion as to its origin.
