Naturalis - a taxidermist at work
I had the best day yesterday! Me and my mom had so much fun looking at all kinds of beautiful dead animals in Naturalis (I took a gazillion pictures, will post those later!), and like that wasn't good enough, I got to witness biology students getting a taxidermy class!!! It was so amazing, I can't stop jumping with excitement! I got to watch a squirrel be prepared! The taxidermist was one of the few mammal taxidermists Naturalis has and he was very very skilled and skinned that squirrel like he was doing laundry. I learned so so so much by watching him up close and he told such amazing and helpful stories! I can not wait to try myself, defrosting a mouse asap!
