The D'Bone Collector Museum in Davao City is headed and curated by Darrell Dean Blatchley, who opened it to the public to educate others about animals. Over the years, the collection has grown to over 700 specimens displayed in exhibits throughout the museum's three floors. Among the most notable specimens are a skeleton of a 41-foot-long sperm whale and the bones of a grizzly bear.
Although bones and skeletons can seem too morbid, the museum counters this with the use of imaginative, colorful dioramas and mirrors that make an interesting depiction of the different environments these bones or animals belonged to. Some of the animal remains were collected from Indonesia, Russia, Thailand, and Canada.
