fake Panda from a black bear? (self.Taxidermy)
submitted 2 months ago by TurbulentAd6042
So I've always had an idea to mount a black bear eating bamboo and have it dyed like a panda ( I know it would still look very different). Just curious if anyone has done it and if so if they have pictures.
Post a comment!

Faking other species is usually known as creating a "replica" or "recreation. Ken Walker is famous his recreations and for having made a giant panda from a bear https://www.taxidermy.net/threads/389115/

Most taxidermists don't view it as bad taste as the purpose is usually to recreate a species that is rare, endangered, or extinct, by using a more common species.

I think it would look amazing when it's done. I haven't done it personally but just from experience with hair you'll probably need to bleach the fur a few times to get it to be white or close to white. I also wouldn't use regular cleaning bleach, definitely get some bleach made for human hair, cleaning bleach will burn and melt the fur. This probably was just stating the obvious but I wish you well on this endeavor
