The stuff(ed) of nightmares: when taxidermy goes wrong
Taxidermy is an inherently creepy pastime if you ask us, which, to date, nobody ever has (thanks for the vote of confidence, guys). Still, it gets that bit more creepy when the animals would have been more recognizable by their owners if left to rot. The wonderful Twitter presence of @CrapTaxidermy celebrates those enthusiastic amateurs (we assume) who don’t consider a lack of skill or finesse a bar to entry to the taxidermy industry. ‘A’ for effort and an incredibly charitable ‘C-‘ for results, provided they promise to stay the hell away from our pets once they’ve scratched their last sofa and chased their last stick. So here are our top 3 from the horrifyingly hilarious Twitterfeed. Sweet dreams!

3. The saddest otter of all

And a surprise bonus animal. Because who hasn’t ever thought a fox would be more aerodynamic if modeled on the freshly sharpened HB pencil?
