At times realistic and at times a caricature, LifeFormations has created animals for a variety of venues when a real animal didn’t fit the exhibit program.  In one instance, the animals were pets on which young visitors could practice being a veterinarian, checking for a heart beat and taking a temperature.  In other instances, the animals were characters that told stories to the audience.  And in at least one instance, an exhibits featured animals in a circle-of-life type situation in which one group of animals were consuming and decomposing an animal from another group.
