Natural history technician with a stuffed owl

What’s taxidermy? It’s when you take an animal's own real skin, treat it so it won't decay, and apply it to what's called a form. The form is basically a mould of the animal's body, either produced from a cast or sculpted out of clay. Things like eyes, teeth, and beaks are made of glass or some other artificial material, and added at the end. Any vertebrate - that is, anything with a backbone - can be taxidermied.
