  • Henry Johnson is an elderly gas attendent living in Goldsmith, Texas, a West Texas town of four hundred people. His collection consists of enormous rattlesnake heads, eight inch long centipedes, specimens of a West Texas cricket that are four inches long, and other animals and insects typical of the rough West Texas terrain. His collection even includes a man's finger. He has preserved these items in rubbing alcohol, and displays them in an old wire magazine stand at the gas station. Johnson talks about his collection and shows off his favourite specimen.
