Taxidermied Belka and Strelka

In life.

A taxidermied Belka and Strelka are on display at the Memorial Museum of Cosmonautics, which celebrates the achievements of the Soviet space program.

In death.

Belka amd Strelka Belka were the first living creatures to circle the earth in a space craft, and make it back down to earth.

Laika, of course, never came back; she was suffocated in space, and burned up on re-entry.
