Comparative Anatomy Collection


The Comparative Anatomy Collection exhibits preparations, skeletons and specimens which provide us documentary evidence on how vertebrates evolved across millions of years to adapt to new needs such as swimming, digging or running. You will be impressed by the gigantic skeleton of a 16-metre-long sperm whale!
