What are Specimen?

Specimen are the biological samples discovered from the island of Maxeville! 

Explorer and biologist, M. Smith first discovered Maxeville in the early 1800's. The Specimen are the creatures she procured as samples to bring back to the "civilized world". Some of the sites she collected samples from in the early days include Maxington Forest, the Mysterious Mountains of the North, the Maxeville Marshes (nicknamed Marsh Madness), among many other interesting places. 

Below are some of the artifacts from her early journeys including official species documentation photos, on-site photography from the exploration,  journal entries, and field sketches.
