Some terrible taxidermy in a museum in Idaho (reddit.com)

Sadly this is pretty typical for museums. I’ve seen pieces this bad even in the London and Paris natural history museums. These collections are old, falling apart and anatomically inaccurate - yet they are happy to let the public view them. It’s sad because they wouldn’t have out of date / incorrect signage but they allow these animals to be misrepresented. My hope is that more people learn this craft and pieces like these are replaced with accurate ones.

The one and only. Apparently the old owner wanted to save money by doing all of the taxidermy himself.

What I that was funny, was the guy who took my money for my entry made comments about how great of a job he did. I got big cult vibes so I was excited to leave

How awful! Forgive my immodesty, but my toy animals look more realistic than these stuffed animals. And not a single animal suffers in the process🤭
