I am strangely intrigued by these pictures of an unusual autopsy. Scientists from the Royal Veterinary College in England have recently had the opportunity to anatomise an alligator, a giraffe, an elephant and a whale. That it something, that you don´t get to see every day. The dead animals, who were provided by European zoos, have incredible big organs – when you see the pictures you realise how massive these animals actually are and how tiny we are compared to that. There is also a documentary on Channel 4  Inside Nature´s Giants.
