Sloth babies are the celebrities of the animal kingdom this year, appearing on Animal Planet's Too Cute and in Kristen Bell's birthday fantasies. But we'd like to nominate a new junior cutie: the white-handed gibbon! These little primates hail from Southeast Asia, munching on fruit, leaves, insects, and flowers in the wild. Sweater-clad Knuppy, a 3-month-old gibbon born at the Bremen Zoo, can't get enough of his bottle. And with eyes like his, how can a zookeeper with a heart resist?
For centuries, scientists have explored the internal systems of animals in an attempt to learn more about our origins and genetic relationships.

Those served as the basis of his artwork as well as an outlet for his intellectual curiosity.
At London's Natural History Museum, a new exhibit called Animals Inside Out indulges mankind's fascination by displaying plastinated animals that use the same technology developed by Gunther von Hagens's for the popular Body Worlds exhibits. While fiendish at first glance, the displays showcase the intricate architecture of an amazing animal world.
Take a look at these images and then let us know: fascinating or freaky?
