National Museum of Natural History

This looks like the preparation area of the Mammal Division at NMNH. Note the elk antler in the background. The skin has been tanned - not for taxidermy - but for a scientific specimen.

Another Possibility

Could be a sea otter pelt. The size and long neck suggest it.

"No Caption"

And rightly spoken; what words would suffice? I think her husband's name is Igor.

Definitely a primate

Its visible front paw looks prehensile, so this is likely a primate.

It Gave Him an Idea

I think it's Norman Bates' mother, in better days. She's been cleaning his room and asked "What for?" He replied, "Get stuffed" and that got him thinking...


Wile E. Coyote from your friends at Acme Explosives.

'Peanuts' refugee

Lucy van Pelt, before fame?

Lab Notes

That is quite the setup our young lady has, I am assuming she does taxidermy for a hobby. I just don't understand the large can of sausage on the shelf.

Last Stop Taxidermist

Long-tailed macaque is my guess. Too long of a tail for a even a big cat.


That has to be the biggest squirrel I've ever seen.
I guess we know what she'll wear to the ball tonight.

No thanks!

No ma'am, I am not interested in the skin of a polecat.

Lady and her furry friend.

Nice Beaver! I'm sorry, sometimes I just can't help myself.
