Shark taxidermy – Chn 9 News


In January 2018 our Taxidemist, Katrina McCormick, commenced a 12 month project to preserve the skeleton of a 2 metre long Mako shark.

The shark, caught in a fishing net off the coast of Sydney, was one of the first ever to be put through a CT scan. This will allow scientists a 3D look into the anatomy of one of the most feared and misunderstood animals of the sea.
