The words I would use to describe the ANIMAL INSIDE OUT exhibit include striking, extremely interesting, cool (yes, cool), and (dare I say?) disturbing. There, now you know what an unscientific amoeba I have been all along.
I feel a little disingenuous giving you all the good news about the ANIMAL INSIDE OUT without giving you a word of caution. I don’t want to be glib, but honestly this exhibit is more breath catching than most Hollywood films, and yet would be a welcomed addition to any haunted house.
There is something particularly disconcerting about being face to face with a shark or any other large predator that would gladly have me for dinner. This understandable response is simple human instinct. But there is something else at play as well.
So amongst the glowing reviews of a fascinating and often beautiful exhibit, I want you, my readers, to be warned: this rose has its thorns. We are indeed lucky to have such a world class exhibit so close at hand. Just know visiting it might be a bit hard on those with gentle hearts.
