Animal Inside Out

That was literally what we saw in Natural History Museum (NHM) this morning.

Few years ago, I came to know about Body Worlds from J and went to see the exhibition in Singapore. Body Worlds is a traveling exhibition of preserved human bodies and body parts that are prepared using a technique called plastination to reveal inner anatomical structures. The exhibition’s developer and promoter is German anatomist Gunther von Hagens, who invented the plastination technique in the late 1970s at theUniversity of Heidelberg.

Instead of looking at human specimens, this exhibition is dedicated to animals’ anatomy. We saw lots of different types of animals but the most impressive was the elephant, ostrich, shark and giraffe.

Unfortunately we were not able to take photos in the exhibition. BUT they exhibited a camel in the entrance of NHM.

Dav and the 3 headed camel.

I would highly recommend going to this exhibition if you’re interested in animals and anatomy. Dav and I truly enjoyed it.
