Bare Bones exhibition visits Middlesbrough.

A TEMPORARY exhibition is to go on display at Middlesbrough's Dorman Museum.

North east-based touring exhibition company Blue Tokay Ltd has loaned the museum two displays from their Bare Bones collection, which looks at the anatomy of animals in an unusual way.

Unlike many other natural history exhibitions, Bare Bones contains specimens in skeletal form, skilfully shown in lifelike poses. These displays help to show various anatomical features and adaptations which would otherwise not be seen.

To complement the display, some of the museum's own "Bare Bones" collection will be on show between April 4 and July 20 - many of which have not been on display for decades.

Set in the backdrop of the museum's H20 gallery, the two displays include an Osprey in mid-flight and a series of five frogs in a leap to show the different limb positions while jumping.
