Animals Inside Out

Amazing field trip today to The Leonardo to see the Animals Inside Out exhibit.

 "Explore the intricate biology, zoology and physiology of the world’s most spectacular creatures, large and small in this fascinating new exhibition by BODY WORLDS creator, anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens. ANIMAL INSIDE OUT takes visitors on an anatomical safari of more than 100 specimens. Each animal is painstakingly preserved by the remarkable process of Plastination, invented by Dr. von Hagens. From goats to giraffes, elephants to eels and octopuses to ostriches visitors will discover the form and function of animals both exotic and familiar. Animal biology textbooks spring to life in this unforgettable museum learning experience."
It was pretty intense. At first Boo was talkative, comfortably using comparative morphology but as the animals got larger she grew exceptionally quiet. 
 I felt the need to remind her that none of the animals were harmed in the creation of the exhibit. It was amazing but as I said intense. I think the look on her face pretty much says it all.
