Game: what the heck is this!? Round 2 Answered

What the heck is this? In this case, I know exactly what it is. Here's a hint: The pictures were taken at the Harvard Natural History Museum.

I would "guess" that this is from the Museum of Comparative Zoology ;-) The first and third pictures resemble Arachnids of some sort, but the middle one, if of the same creature, doesn't bare the same resemblance.

How did I miss this first time? The middle one is different, it's the "Spiny Orb Weaver" a common Florida species.

Its a conspiracy! They all lied to you! They wanted to keep the great-horned wilderbeastae (that's plural, of course) bottled up and away from society, but I knew, ohh I knew alright! They called me crazy, off my rocker, but its all LIES!

After these many months of research, I conclude that is it indeed a chupacabra. You are wrong Mr. Eric, if that is your real name, Alexadre Mariachi Kabul. You are indeed an illegal alien to amazing U S of A.

They are bottled great-horned wilderbeast -- taken with tilt-shift photography to make them look smaller than they really are.

These appear to be examples of the Great Southwest Horned Spider.

I'd say they are crabs ... More precisely : Energizing drinks with weird crabs species ... into ice cubes.

At first I thought they were encased in amber, but on second glance, saw it was an amber liquid and not a solid (take note of the vials at the top of the middle picture).

If we consider this liquid is a preservative, we could say that samples in pic 1 and 3 have a carapace that prevent them to rotten, and that samples in pic 2 are more sensitive to decomposition ... (This genius deduction is a little step for me, but a great step for the rest of the world !!!!!) =o)

Looks like some sort of horned/armored beetle, but I have no idea. :P

Was this one too hard, or did it just get buried? I'll post the answer tomorrow morning.
