Skulls Staff Spotlight: Behind the Bones with Anthony
What is your primary role at Skulls Unlimited or SKELETONS: Museum of Osteology?
I am the Lead Cadaver Technician and Driver. This was the job I was originally hired for, however, I have many more responsibilities on the Processing side.
What is the coolest thing about your job?
The coolest thing about my job is the number of rare animals I have had the pleasure of processing. It’s to the point where the rarest animals seem mundane sometimes.
Do you have a bone collection? If so, name your favorite or rarest specimen.
No, but I do have a decent collection of animal skins. I also have two petrified specimens, a turtle and a tortoise. Their names are Dave and Buster.
What is the nerdiest thing you do in your spare time?
Listen to books on tape.
What is your favorite specimen in the museum(s) or your favorite thing we sell in the Gift Shop?
The whale hanging from the ceiling now that I have an appreciation for how much work went into creating it. I also enjoy the different kinds of beef jerky in the Gift Shop.
What is your favorite part of each workday?
Interacting with my co-workers.
Can you play any instruments?
I have absolutely no musical talent whatsoever.
Choose a movie title for the story of your life (choose an existing title or make up your own).
Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap or This is the Worst Fun Ever – either one describes my life pretty well.
