Do you offer pet taxidermy?
I offer pet taxidermy, but keep in mind that the result might be disappointing as a stuffed animal will never be as good as your living pet.
How do I take care of my taxidermy?
It is important that you never place your taxidermy in direct sunlight. This will result in faded colours. A regular dusting is also recommended.
Help! My taxidermy animal is losing hair/feathers!
This is a sign of a moth/beetle infestation. If possible, put the animal in the freezer for a few days. If this is impossible, put the animal in a plastic bag and spray thoroughly with insect spray.
Where do you get your animals for taxidermy?
All animals I work with have died a natural death (roadkill, window strikes, old age, disease…) and are sourced from breeders, sanctuaries and zoos.
What should I do when I have an animal to be stuffed?
If you find a dead animal you must put it in a plastic bag in the freezer as soon as possible to stop decay. To check if an animal is fresh enough to stuff, gently pull on the hair/feathers on the belly. If they fall out it means the animal is too far gone for me to work with. If the animal you want to have stuffed is indigenous, you have to fill in this form.
Contact me for request, quote or any questions about the form.
CAUTION! When touching dead animals, be sure to wear gloves and to wash your hands afterwards. Dead animals can carry parasites and diseases such as ticks, fleas, fox tapeworm, rabies...
