Sometimes even bad taxidermy can be fun, as long as you’re not the one paying for it. As we showed in our list of 15 taxidermy fails that deserve a refund, a botched mount can occasionally be downright hilarious. Sometimes, however, you don’t want the thing anywhere in your house, and especially not at night. While not all of the examples below necessarily fall under the category of “bad taxidermy,” they are certainly residents of the uncanny valley. We’re not sure what it is that creeps us out so much about these animals, but something just ain’t right.

Bonus points if you can identify all of these. Some were definitely made to look “unique” on purpose, while others just have us scratching our heads.

    Being a retired bird taxidermist, I see many mounts that were not done professionally and lacked a lot of knowledge when it comes to taxidermy. Many of your photos were from very very old work and if not properly done or cared for the results after time will look like those. What is disturbing is that some of the work was done in my opinion by a few deranged individuals. Some is not what we call taxidermy but a sick mind…
