Zoo opens Body Worlds anatomical exhibition for animals

The controversial Body Worlds creator Gunther von Hagens is bringing a new anatomical exhibition to the Neunkirchen Zoo in the state of Saarland. The show features some of the world’s largest animals preserved in various states of dissection using his famed plastination process.

“We’re pushing animal anatomy to a new level with this exhibition,” von Hagens, also known widely in the German media as “Dr. Death,” said during a press conference.

Described by his organisation as an “anatomical safari,” the exhibition beginning on Friday features more than 100 pieces, giving visitors a view beneath the surface of an elephant, brown bear, squid, giraffe, leopard, gorilla and other exotic creatures.
