When done correctly, taxidermy is a time-honored art that restores harvested animals to near life-like perfection. From the glint in that buck’s eyes to the moisture on its nose, a great taxidermist is an expert at paying attention to the details. For example of top-notch taxidermy, think Chuck Testa.
However, the taxidermy you are about to see on display has very little resemblance to the original animal. These taxidermy fails range from horrifying to hilarious.
Viewing tip: You’ll probably have to watch the short video twice to pick your favorite (best of the worst? worst of the worst?). We editors think that the sixth critter shown, the red fox (we think it’s a red fox), is the winner.
