I remember as a child briefly thinking I should be a taxidermist. I love animals so I thought it would be a great idea to make them for a living. So I wrote a letter (back then we used pen and paper) to a taxidermist and he showed me how it’s done, in great detail, with pictures and instructions. And, ewww, I quickly realized it wasn’t for me. These people below shouldn’t have gone down the taxidermy path either.
Hello sir, can I fill your glass?
Little red fox with an appointment to see the doctor. His she-fox has had enough baby foxes. He’s obviously concerned about the whole procedure.
I can see why the owner of this cat just couldn’t bear to live without him. He’s just gorgeous!
Really bad taxidermy.. moose! A very odd moose.
Probably being exhibited in one of the great museums of the world, the scared stiff cheetah. Such a graceful animal.
The retarded curious cat.
The mad cow with fluffy ears and a sheepish smile.
Little fox carrying his best mate the duckling, or is that his dinner.
Terry the taxidermist ran out of glass eyes for cats and decided to use his glass eyes for barn owls. Good thinking Terry.
Rover the very special dog can now live on forever.
On eBay at the moment you can buy 20 taxidermy ducklings from China for $120. I’m just wondering who would need 20 stuffed ducks! They are cute though.
You can also buy these classy stuffed crocodiles riding a chopper on eBay with a starting bid of $98. Bargain.
Last one. The golden eyed squirrel, rat thing, with the mange, standing his ground..
Ok, one more really bad taxidermy piece.. you might recognize it
The Physical Impossibility Of Death In The Mind Of Someone Living by Taxidermist to the rich, Damien Hirst.
