Really Bad Taxidermy

very bad taxidermy

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.
