From the creators of singular, artistic explorations of human anatomy comes a new exhibition exploring the biology and physiology of the world's most spectacular creatures—a revealing look at what makes animals so different from us, yet surprisingly similar.
ANIMAL INSIDE OUT showcases amazing animal specimens that have been preserved through Plastination—a method that prevents decay and allows for different parts of specimens to be seen in amazing detail.
From goats to giraffes and octopuses to ostriches, you'll see the inner workings of these impressive animals and better understand the evolution of animals and the natural world. The animals in the exhibit were obtained from various zoos, universities and animal groups after they had died.
You’ll be amazed to see the different ways animals have adapted their anatomy and physiology according to where they live. Body Worlds creator Dr. Gunther von Hagens says the exhibition is intended to recognize the wonder and traits of animals: “It is critical that we increase our understanding of animals in the wild, not only for their preservation, but also for our own.”
Dr. Angelina Whalley, exhibition curator and creative and conceptual designer of the Body Worlds exhibitions adds, “ANIMAL INSIDE OUT shows animal anatomy with far more detail than any textbook. It’s fascinating to see the anatomical similarities between different animal groups, including humans. Animals too are skin, flesh and bone, like humans.”
