The Milwaukee County Zoo is getting ready to open a new exhibit called Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out.
It was created by the same people who made Body Worlds with human specimens.
"Once in a while I included an animal with our human exhibit and I was fascinated to see how people reacted," said curator Dr. Angelina Whalley.
Her husband, Dr. Gunther von Hagens, created Plastination, the process used to preserve the specimens. 
"The specimens are extremely durable. They are dry. They are odorless," Whalley added.
Visitors will see a shark with its razor sharp teeth, a bull that looks like it is rearing for battle, and a camel that looks like it has three heads.
Whalley said the larger the animal the more challenging it is to preserve, "An animal like the camel or also the giraffe would certainly take us two years to accomplish."
Like the human exhibit that had an animal specimen, the animal exhibit has a human specimen.
"I know that we humans tend to relate everything to ourselves, and I would want people to understand how similar we are underneath our skins," Whalley said.
Body Worlds: Animal Inside Out opens May 6 at the Milwaukee County Zoo. Tickets are $8 for children ages 3-12 and $10 for adults. That's in addition to the cost to get into the zoo.
