Tough Enough to Stuff?

Join us as we uncover some of the mysteries of taxidermy. Is it as gruesome as some people think?

Taxidermy is often thought of as the sinister pastime of eccentric misfits, rednecks and knife murderers. Take Hitchcock's psycho Norman Bates for example. Or Joe’s Taxidermy in The Simpsons: 'you snuff 'em, we stuff 'em!' In fact, taxidermists are often quite normal. A skilled one needs to be a good naturalist, but also an artist, sculptor and anatomist. Join Museum Bird Curator and member of the Guild of Taxidermists Katrina Cook as she uncovers some of the mysteries of this little understood but fascinating profession.
