How do zoologists learn about the anatomy of different animals? And how do they display these specimens in the museums for us to observe and learn from? Watch the detailed deconstruction and reconstruction of a Jamaican Fruit Bat in theΒ Anatomy of Preservation: A Journey from Specimen to Object of Study.

This time-lapse video from LSA’s Museum of Zoology takes the bat species Artibeus jamacanensis from specimen to display. The process might be a little stomach-churning, but then again, good science isn’t always mess-free.
