Snooping around the Explorers Club, taking photos with a phone. . .

We’re in the outdoor adventure hotbed of Manhattan this week. Oh wait, New York? That’s right, here in the hustle and bustle is headquartered an epicenter of all things adventure, the venerable Explorers Club. Founded in 1904, the club sits at 46 East 70th Street in New York City and it currently has 30 chapters worldwide. It is a “professional society dedicated to scientific exploration of Earth, its oceans, and outer space.” Here are 10 random items we found today snooping around the club. —T.C. Worley

You missed the sperm whale penis! Was up in the trophy room too.

Ian – didn’t miss it, just couldn’t get a decent photo with my phone. Interesting object to taxiderm-ize, eh?

T.C. — Indeed it is! glad you didn’t miss it. Also the mutant elephant tusks are cool too. Glad you liked the Club! Come by on Friday if you’re still around for an event I helped put together called The Explorers Expo.

How about the trick polar bear? Or the coffee table on the first floor made out of salvaged wood from the titanic!
