I waited 4+ years for this: the World Taxidermy Championships!

I’m already super spoiled with great habitat dioramas and taxidermy at The Field Museum, but I had to jump at the chance to attend the 2017 World Taxidermy Championships to experience the latest innovations in taxidermy wildlife art for myself. 10/10 would attend again

    OMG. I find taxidermy so awesome, not something I’d do myself but I love the beauty of each animal and how it’s frozen in time and especially admiring every strand of fur and muscle structures, it’s so gorgeous such a wonderful piece of not only art but piece of time.

    Wouldn’t mind stuffing her.


    How do taxidermists prepare fish so they keep the scales?

    As an equestrian I hope those horses and ponies weren’t killed for this. But most likely not
