Grant Terrell is an Ecology & Evolution major in the department of Evolution, Ecology and Organismal Biology. In AU15 Grant discovered the tetrapods collection, a treasure trove of animals with 4 limbs, where he first worked as a work study student, then research assistant and he is now the curatorial assistant in the collection. Grant manages loans and visits to the collection, sets up displays, enters data into the database and works with and trains other undergraduate students. When time allows he follows his passion preparing museum study skins. Recently he prepared his first American Kestrel and Merlin, a beautiful specimen.
Visit him in the collection where he will love to show you what he has recently discovered in the collection.
