Nothing Is Certain But Death and Bad Taxidermy


Red Fox

Red Fox

Fell Terrier?


These pictures are from a Danish fellow who has created a Facebook page that brings us “Dårligt udstoppede dyr,” or “Badly Stuffed Animals.”

Taxidermied freak.

thank you for making me laugh out loud!

After shuddering at the legacy of these poor animals, I laughed too! I have to admit though, that red fox table is really creative, even if I can't get over the fact that the legs and body were essentially tossed out--what a waste.

Hilarious, the first fox being my favorite.

Had you not captioned the first one, I would have been at a total loss.

The bench fox may be a roadkill creation by an art student. A lot of fox killed on the road have fine tails and heads, but are wrecked im the middle by vehicle impact.

The lion taxidermy at top was a skin shipped from Africa at a time when most people had no idea what a lion looked like. With just a skin, and no mold or pictures, you can put up an animal that bears very little resemblance to what is found in nature.

I feel a little guilty that I love that fox table.

Notice the 'bloomers' on the rear legs of the bench fox. I think that's the funniest part!

I read this post the same day that I finished "Beatrice and Virgil", by Yann Martel.

Which is pretty random, but. How often in the same day do you read so much about taxidermy?
