We had this here the other day as an off shoot from one of the thylacine threads. It is wonderful though especially the leopard.

The taxidermist for King Frederick 1 of Sweden had never actually seen a lion.

The two legged donkey, surely a cryptozoological entry worthy of the Fortean Times.

It looks like something out of Dalì! Or the unfortunate record of a car accident - a fiat, by the look of the profile.

Another tribute to Dalì's crutch here:

There used to be (and may still be) a taxidermy deer at Otley White House that was perhaps in more a poor state of repair than originally badly done... one of the eyes had dropped off, part of the face had peeled and all of the feet had gone completely, leaving it standing on metal prongs that came out the bottom of the legs.

It was like some awful kind of really inept terminator type infiltrator, could imagine it coming for me with those prongs scraping along the ground. Shocked

Was at a meeting in there once, ended up having to cover it with a hi-vis jacket, was not good. Laughing

Some hilarious stuff comes up if you put "bad taxidermy" into google image search.

This is one of the better ones:
