Sometimes, the real thing is just too smelly, loud or would bite the visitors. LifeFormations creates a variety of animals – both realistic and static – ranging from incredibly realistic to highly caricatured. Sometimes we recreate extinct species, sometimes we create scenes in which visitors can practice being a veterinarian, and sometimes we create scenes showing the decomposition of animals after they die. With each figure, the visitors are given the opportunity to learn about the details and behaviors of animals in a proximity and manner they may not otherwise achieve.
