The Akeley Hall of African Mammals is famous for its incredibly life-like dioramas of African mammals in their natural habitat. It was named after Carl Akeley, a legendary naturalist who worked at the Museum for many years and is known as the father of modern taxidermy. He collected many of the animals found in this hall and was the first to display groups of them in natural settings.
