Im not anti hunting or taxidermy, but preserving the beauty is preserving the life and species. They aren't nearly as stunning as they are alive.

I agree but we haven't quite mastered the gift of immortality just yet.

:) I am too, but only if the animal died of natural causes. If it was killed to be stuffed, I'm against it. :p

I LOVE IT. Lol.
I've been researching it for like a year and stuffs. (:
I DO WANNA TRY IT.
I'mma Google it.
Either that, or my dad knows a few taxidermists. (:

Yeah, I probably wouldn't just randomly kill something to make art from it.
WE HAVE A DEAD FOX DOWN THE ROAD, THOUGH. XD

i really wanna try too, im keeping my eye out for fresh roadkill, even if the pelt is damaged i could boil it down and get a pretty skull!

there is a TON of how-to's for taxidermy on youtube. i couldnt find much on google but youtube has LOTS of good information (for once!)


oh really?? you should totally use it! boil the head down and get the skull and see if you can preserve the tail or even the paws maybe. thatd be awesome! even if its old you can still get the skull, just wear gloves lol

The head is crushed.. ):
The paws and tail might be suitable, though.
I live like...In the middle of no where, and there's ALWAYS dead animals on the road.
(:

Thanks for helping meee! (:

your lucky, the only roadkill i ever see are squirrels and ppls pets... id love to find a fox or a rabbit!

my cat brings in birds all the time but birds are hard to mount and i think its illegal cuz they are migratory song-birds lol

lol yeah it comes off that way. its my sneaky way of making PETA lovers think thats what it means so they click it and then they ESPLODE!

lol..jk


yes as long as it died naturally or is a game animal killed for its meat and its whole body is put to use.
Or somehow you end up killing a coyote in your yard cuz its killing your dogs or something, that would be ok too :P

aww poor ducky.
With birds its best to just end their misery, after an attack they RARELY make it back.
my cat brings in a lot of birds, luckily most of the time he just brings them into the house alive rather than injure them so we catch and release it.

haha poor guinea pig!
The most kills my cat has are frogs oh and moths, he brings in some big moths during a certain time of the year [link] he will bring one or 2 in EVERY night and play with them. it was fun to watch at first but its gotten rather irritating.
and another kitty victim here [link] (he lives!)

AWWWW :iconexcitedplz:

back in canada my cat presented us with rats, magpies, robins, insects, etc

down here in florida, he once got ahold of this huge, 4 in long locust. I had a picture of it next to a ruler, but that was a few years ago and I dunno where it is =X
