Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out presents the fascinating and rare opportunity to see what’s under the skin of more than 100 animal specimens. Animal Inside Out will take visitors on an anatomical safari. Adventurers will experience the intricate biology of a variety of the world’s most spectacular creatures including an octopus, horse, reindeer, bull, camel, ostrich, giraffe, as well as a human.

With the skin removed from real specimens, animals are preserved through a process called plastination. Animal Inside Out reveals how intricate the blood vessels of animals are, what the muscular system and various organs of different animals look like, and how they compare to other animals, including that of a human specimen.

This highly educational exhibition is designed for all ages and reveals many curiosities about animals. The exhibition is divided into six areas by biological systems – locomotive, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, and urinary/reproductive – to give visitors an in-depth look at animals from a rarely seen perspective. Highlights of the plastinates featured include the world’s tallest mammal, the giraffe; the rarely seen giant squid; a magnificent bull, with its heart five times the size of a human’s; and a reindeer, with hooves that adapt to the changing seasons.
