The Museum of veterinary anatomy was born in Pisa in 1839 along with the Chair in Zooiatry which is associated with the Faculty of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Pisa. The museum houses evidence of animal species for zootechnics production and animal diseases and includes skeletons, dehydrated preparations, embalmed, stuffed and conserved in alcohol. The horse is the most presented species because of its importance in the social-historical human development. The wide number of preparations about dromedaries, coming from the San Rossore territory, and the teratological collection regarding congenital malformation discoveries, monstrosity and mummies of natural/spontaneous creation take on a special chapter.
