Edgar Rice Burroughs, who wrote 24 novels about his character "Tarzan of the Apes," developed his own wilderness survival skills while living in Idaho.

He worked as a cowboy in the Raft River area as a young man, and later managed a gold dredge on the Snake River for a company based out of Pocatello.
He would have been 146 years old today.

Disclaimer: not for the queasy. No animals (or humans) were killed for the sake of this exhibit.


Stopped in Idaho Falls for lunch and decided to check out the Museum of Idaho. The special exhibit is called Animals Inside Out, which is exactly how it sounds. Lol. Very unique display on how different systems work in different animals. #idaho #idahofalls #museumofidaho #animalsinsideout #science #travel #nomad #giraffe #bull #camel #squid #mammoth

Ever wonder how organs fit inside a snake? It's no surprise: they're long and skinny as well.

Sugar beets grow well in East Idaho, and multiple sugar-producing operations popped up in the area around the turn of the century, as well as a factory town:

Sugar City. By 1907, the factories had all become part of the Utah-Idaho Sugar Co., (later known as U&I) which was then the largest company in Idaho.
Sugar production continued in the region, but a series of problems, including a severe blight in the 1910s and '20s, decimated the entire industry, which never fully recovered.

It's World Elephant Day! Columbian mammoths like our own Bia-Dekape roamed all over Idaho during the last ice age.

These were larger than woolly mammoths (found in the Arctic), and weighed 8-10 tons -- roughly twice as much as African elephants, who are the largest land mammals living today.

Did you know? Reindeer hooves adapt to the seasons.

In summer, when the ground is soft, their hooves are elastic and spongy. In winter, they shrink, become denser, and form sharp edges that help the reindeer walk on ice.

Many of Idaho's neighbors are home to big dinosaur finds. Idaho isn't. Why is that?

One reason is geology: many of our neighbors have more exposed rock (think Southern Utah), whereas most of Idaho is covered in vegetation. One thing Idaho does have more of, though, is small dinosaurs like the oryctodromeus, which burrowed underground.
Thanks to Dr. L.J. Krumenacker for a fascinating lecture yesterday on ancient worlds of Idaho.

This saddle was a prize for a rodeo winner at the 1915 War Bonnet Round Up.

The Idaho Falls rodeo, which turns 110 this weekend, got its start in 1911 at what is now Tautphaus Park.
