Owl preparated with three techniques.



This small exhibition highlights the three preparation techniques NTNU actively uses for animal preparations. The internal anatomy of animals is an unknown to most people, but current preparation techniques make it possible to show what is hidden under feathers and fur.


The Unit for Anatomy, Pathology and Forensic Medicine at NTNU’s Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences (MH) and the Department of Natural History (INH) at the NTNU University Museum have worked closely to prepare the specimens for this exhibition. This intensive cooperation over several years gives us the opportunity to display the whole anatomy of an animal, both inside and out.
