Biography

Dale J. Osborn is a zoologist who has taught and carried out research in many parts of the world including prolonged field research in Egypt. This resulted in the publication with I. Helmy of The Contemporary Land Mammals of Egypt, a study of the modern fauna. He was also a curator for several years in Brookfield Zoo, Chicago. Struck by the acute observation of the ancient Egyptians he has applied his zoological knowledge with his wife, Jana Osbornova, a lecturer in botany and a researcher in Egyptian vegetation, to the depictions of the animals of ancient Egypt.
