Look beyond the Hope Diamond and Lincoln's stove top hat, and you'll discover that, along with beautiful and celebrated treasures, the Smithsonian Institution also houses items that are bizarre, revolting, and downright odd.
Who knew that the Smithsonian was a repository for so much that is gross, icky and weird? We take a look at ten wondrous and unusual artefacts drawn from the Smithsonian’s collections, including Soap Man (a man mummified in soap), the world’s longest tapeworm (9 meters!), a giant squid and a million-year-old sample of Giant Sloth dung.
