Celebrating the British Museum.

Today on google.co.uk there is a special #GoogleDoodle  to mark the 255th anniversary of the +British Museum

The #Doodle  illustrates the Great Court and some of the exhibits that can be found within the historic building in central London.

If you can't get to the museum in person, then you can find some of the artifacts on the +Google Cultural Institute: http://goo.gl/72A0Zs 

Read more about the museum, and find out how many people visited the site when it first opened back in 1759 in this article from +The Guardian: http://goo.gl/kJrkU9 

Search on.

Respect the jaguar! The largest predator in South America, the jaguar can move silently through the darkness and was associated with ferocity and power. You can see this jaguar in #BeyondElDorado http://ow.ly/qR4pS
