I was able to mount white stripe the (piebald????) crow. . Hopefully I did him justice. Had some really damaged and ratty feathers. Lot of fledgling feathers that had yet to molt too. So hes looking a little imperfect but it just be like that. 

I was going to mount him in a flying pose to show off the weird wing feathers but then I noticed he had about 3 decent feathers on his right wing and the rest were like… yikes. Looks a bit better in a standing position so the feathers can overlap and hide the missing and broken ones. Poor baby must have been through a lot.

I really need to find a place to take better pics.

I was fortunate enough to finally view this beautiful thylacine specimen behind the scenes at the AMNH in New York. I have been trying to view it for quite some time if anyone recalls this post!

This was a female that lived at the Bronx Zoo from 1917 to 1919. She was the last of four thylacines to live there [x]. After her death, the New York Zoological Society donated her body to the AMNH. This individual’s skeleton is also part of the museum’s collection.

Unfortunately, none of the AMNH’s thylacine material is currently on public display.

This taxidermy shop has been closed literally every time I’ve been through this tiny town (though it’s been there for decades) but today it was open! It’s run by a lady taxidermist who has it as a little free museum.

Photo-shoot with my European badger soft mount. (Still a WIP!)

My best piece of taxidermy yet I think. Still needs work on the limb positioning and needs painting on the nose and some little bits where its missing hair around the eyes. Its got this constant expression of judgment and I don’t really know how to fix that. 

Disclaimer: The hide for this mount was salvaged from a roadkill badger. Salvaged legally in accordance with the Wildlife Countryside Act.

minibat:

my two first taxidermy ever! the first one on the left is Boris, he has his issues… a bunch of holes,s weird pose and not so glamour eyes….

the second is Bella, she’s not perfect either but i think she is a huge improvement still ;v;! she’s not completely dry, but only the back feets need more time, the rest is pretty stiff.

I dont have a lot of people to show this to, I’m a bit shy to post on my facebook to all my friends and family to see… I hope my vulture friends enjoy!
