Where's This in Los Gatos?

This is the next in our new series in Los Gatos Patch, a fun guessing game. A mystery photo will be posted each week, showing something in plain sight, but closeup or from an unusual perspective. Readers will try to identify the object and its location.

Look up, look down, look close, look all around. Turn your head this way and that. This is an exercise in seeing outside the box. Expand your perceptions. There is art all around in your everyday world. This is a fun feature, so wild and humorous responses are encouraged. Next week the answer will be revealed. Hints may be provided.

Good guess, but not quite right. The History Museum did have an exhibit titled "Bear in Mind, The Story of the California Grizzly" based on the book of that title by Bancroft Librarian Susan Snyder. That story was covered in Los Gatos Patch at the time, January 2011: http://losgatos.patch.com/articles/gone-but-not-forgotten-the-california-grizzly-bear

One of the opponents of the gun shop?

Yes! You got the location, but not the identification of the object. Since the museum docent did not know the exact identity, and since I gave it away in a previous post, above, I will give you credit. Someone in the back room of YSI said this was a Siberian Grizzly Bear. Some Los Gatos resident brought it back from an expedition and donated it to the Museum. If anyone knows more about it, let us know. See the additional photos. The Youth Science Institute is a great place to visit. http://losgatos.patch.com/listings/youth-science-institute-vasona-science-and-nature-center While you are at it, check out Where's This in Saratoga? There are three of them that have not been guessed.
