Formalin Preserved Animals

I do warn in advance that these might not be for everyone. These are older preserved animals and while it sux that these animals died, for me I find them a majestic and beautiful piece of historic art.

In the preservation of animal specimens for study, animals are usually preserved using formalin where the whole body would be immersed in the posture in which it is supposed to stay permanently because it will be hardened.

They are just fascinating. The black and white photos give them more depth. Beautiful artistry - all in the field of science. K
