Teaching collection that includes animal skeletons, animal skulls, historical animal models, wool and fur samples, glass plate positives and measuring instruments, some of which can be dated to the beginning of the 20th century and come primarily from field research. The objects were used in courses until about 20 years ago, and after the necessary inspection and digitization, they will be used more in teaching and research again. The collection will then be made publicly accessible.

No concrete data known. However, the collection is estimated to have begun in the early 1950s.

Total number of objects:
(approx.) 1,500

Partial collections/convolutes:
Animal specimens, animal models, product samples, historical photographs and teaching materials, etc.

Development status:
Currently in progress

State of digitalization:
No comprehensive digital indexing of the collection holdings. Individual specimens were digitized as part of the “Depots of Knowledge” internship program in September 2016.
