The internet is often a place of wonder. Anything a person could possibly want to know is no more than a few keystrokes away. Whether I’m looking up Einstein’s birthday or the latest and greatest in the world of terrible taxidermy, I’ve learned more about computers, science, technology, and the nature of things than any school was able to teach me. For that, I’ll be eternally grateful.
However, the internet is also full of awful, mind searing phenomenon. If you’ve ever wanted to see a person puke paint or jam a mason jar up their nether region, then you’re in luck. If you’re interested in seeing some of the worst taxidermy work in the history of taxidermy, well… you’re in luck there too.
Terrible Taxidermy – When Taxidermy Goes Wrong
You see, a few days ago I stumbled onto a Tumblr page that I immediately thought was fake. It was full of the images you’re about to see, and my mind immediately recoiled at the terrible creatures I saw. Once majestic animals turned into creepy, wooden creatures with mangled, Picaso like faces doing completely unnatural things. There’s one fox in particular that will forever haunt your nightmares. That much I promise.
What person wouldn’t want to step out of bed in the morning to find this ferocious feline hissing at them? Its evil face, forever frozen in time, will never fail to induce pants shitting for the bleary eyed waking up after a restful slumber.
It seems these cool cats took the exact same drugs that our friend above took, just moments before kicking the bucket. They’re either extremely excited, very high, or a combination of the two. Munchies, anyone?
I… I don’t even know. Just in case you’re wondering, yes… this is supposed to be a cheetah. I realize that may seem like a bit of a stretch, but just trust me on this one. Its running days are over, but it sure makes for an excellent foot stool! Yet another example of absolutely terrible taxidermy.
This has got to be the saddest otter I’ve ever seen, dead or alive. Once again, what person would want this to adorn any part of their home? Do the owners lock it away, only to bring it out when they feel the need to cry themselves to sleep?
So… many… drugs. This picture is almost making me hallucinate just looking at it!
I can’t quite put my finger on it, but somehow I have trouble believe the cat’s face actually looked like this before it expired. I don’t know… something about the color of the eyes perhaps? Yes, it must be that…
This is the fantastic fox that I mentioned earlier. If ever there excited a murder fox, this would be it. Deep in sleep, tucked into your warm bed, the murder fox slowly creeping forward, one paw at a time, just waiting to plunge it’s massive blade into your uvula.
I wanted to end this motley collection on a happy note. This is by far the jolliest dead lion I’ve ever gazed upon. I mean sure, its face may be mangled, and its tongue may look like an overcooked piece of tenderloin, but you know… can’t have it all.
More Terrible Taxidermy
If you haven’t quite gotten your fix yet, then we’ve got just the place for you. In fact, we’ve got two… starting with the famed Orville Copter that Gina wrote about a few months ago, followed my the mother load – the Tumblr I mentioned earlier that’s absolutely full of user submitted, terrible taxidermy. You’ll be both entertained and horrified for hours.
