Displaying fish, birds, reptiles and mammals, the Galerie d’Anatomie Comparée gives visitors a chance to see the adaptation of the vertebrae skeletons. The tour continues on the upper levels, where the Galerie de Paléontologie revives a giant, sometimes scary, world of fossilized skeletons. Along the way you’ll see dinosaurs, mammoths, and even Louis XV’s rhinoceros.
