In December 2015 I went to the exhibition ‘Animal Inside Out‘ . It was really interesting to see all kind of plastinates of animals. They also had several horse plastinates.
I was excited to see so many horses and horse body parts. All very beautifully displayed and very educational. What stunned me the most was a cross-cut of a horses head. The size of a horses brain is about the same size as my fist! I never realized this. Yet they are so smart!
Here is a cross-cut from a horse head with all the parts.
In this picture you can see where the brain is located and how small it is, compared to humans. Another amazing fact is that horses have the biggest eyes of all land mammals.
Here is the same cross-cut, but now with my hand next to the brain.
What facts about horses amazed you?
