Esty shop owner aKNITomy offers a unique take on the traditional stuffed animal by selling knitted animals that have been dissected. The plush toys showcase the innards of various creatures such as frogs and bunny rabbits as if they were recently operated on in a science class.

aKNITomy offers a clever spin on dissecting animals with these crochet works of art. The pieces feature brightly colored yarn stitched together to replicate small creatures such as frogs, aliens and even the human head with the details of the anatomy clearly visible. The pieces are placed on metallic tins similar to ones you'd see used in a science class during a dissection lesson. While the subject matter is a bit gruesome, the crochet technique makes these pieces quite adorable.
