Scientists step outside when they need to study about wild animals or digging out million-year-old fossils. This sounds so exciting and adventurous. But, the other side of it is scary and hilarious. Scientists started sharing their most embarrassing #Fieldworkfails from 2015.Recently French illustrator Jim Jourdane has decided to compile the most memorable ones and turn them into amusing whimsical drawings.
