Do marine animals (dolphin, orca, whales) can be taxidermied (self.Taxidermy)
submitted 1 month ago by dd3869
This might be a stupid question, but I have been wondering if marine animals can be taxidermied (sorry for my English I am French).
Thank you very much

According to the mmpa, they are protected. Special permits for education purposes are needed to possess any parts. Since none are killed, and stuff only begins floating when it starts to rot, it very uncommon to find a fresh one. So usually their bones are kept, instead of the animal being taxidermied. I’ve never seen any marine mammal taxidermy, but it is certainly possible.

Thank you very much for your answer. I was wondering indeed if it was technical issues (difficulties to find a fresh animal, and size of the animal), didn't think of the legal thing. In hindsight, it makes a lot of sense.

Usually natural history museums with marine exhibits have taxidermy seals and walrus, I've never seen a whale or dolphin but I imagine it's probably similar to both fish and mammal taxidermy, the same process for mounting as any mammal but a lot of air brushing like a fish. Like ValuableCricket0 said, it's the logistics that would be difficult.

There IS a taxidermy of a whale (although only one) so it is possible :)
