Deep in the heart of a Parisian suburb is a museum that hosts a macabre collection of strange and freakish exhibits. The Fragonard Museum in Maisons-Alfort, France is dedicated to the French anatomist Honoré Fragonard, who, in 1762, became Professor of Anatomy at the world's first veterinary school in Lyons. The museum contains a bizarre collection of 'monsters'. These are farm animals with rare birth defects, such as conjoined twins, animals with polymelia (multiple limbs), two-headed cows and animals born with missing heads and bodies. They were created by various anatomy students during the 19th and early 20th Century. Although the models presented at the museum are unfortunate farm animals, such birth defects also occur in humans too.
