The Telus Spark science centre is welcoming a new exhibit that showcases the intricate biology and physiology of some of the world’s most spectacular creatures.
“You can think of it as an animal biology or anatomy textbook just springing to life in front of your face,” Telus Spark spokesperson Jacqueline Tran said. “We’ve got the world’s tallest mammal, we’ve got the world’s tallest bird. There’s also reproductive organs and digestive organs.”
According to the Telus Spark, highlights at the Body Worlds exhibit include a giraffe, a giant squid, a bull and a reindeer.
“Animal Inside Out offers visitors a unique opportunity to view animals from a rarely seen perspective, through skeletons, muscles, organs, circulatory systems and more,” a news release stated.
Body Worlds exhibitions rely on a body donation program, and the animal specimens featured come from cooperation with various zoos, veterinary groups and other organizations. Body Worlds says none of the animals in the exhibition were harmed or killed.
Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out opens on Oct. 25 and runs until spring 2020.
