Some time ago I enjoyed being alone with my daughter and we went to the Zoo.
She was ecstatic because she was going to see the animals and I was curious because i was going to see what remnant of them.
In fact, I love animals, but I don't like to see them caged, and even she, though she loves to be there looking at all their movements and behaviors, has developed enough perception to realize that Zoo is not a natural environment to them and somehow there is a lot of sadness in their eyes :(
After the visit by the zoo we went straight to the exhibition hall where skeletons were installed :)
This exhibition aims to educate, raise awareness and develop sustainable values, attitudes and behaviors in favor of nature and biodiversity through a pedagogical program based on the study of bone structure that constitutes the support of the animal body with all its differences and particularities.
The exhibition is located at "Zoo da Maia" in Portugal and features 41 species of skeletons, including mammals, birds and reptiles.
Most of the animal skeletons are from the Zoo itself, which after necropsy were prepared by the Department of Zootechnics "Anatomical Technique Service" from University of Trás-os-Montes and Alto Douro.
The pedagogical nature of this exhibition allows us to deepen our understanding about the differences and particularities of different species and thus enhance their preservation.
Of course I had to take some pictures, not all the 41 skeletons, but at least half of them ;)
