Creature Shop

The Creature Shop is a company founded by Jim Henson to build creatures for movies and television series. The company is well known for its more fantastical creations, such as the aliens in Farscape, but it also does life-like replications of real animals, especially when unusual animal performances are required. The Creature Shop was responsible for the talking animals in Eddie Murphy's Doctor Dolittle, and won two academy awards for the life-like animals in the film Babe.
