Museum taxidermy techniques differ from the mainstream idea of stuffing animals. So how does it work? First, our taxidermist, Tim Bovard, uses clay to make a mold out of a skeleton. Then he creates a lightweight mannequin from the clay mold, which is made of urethane foam, burlap, plaster and papier-mâché. Finally, he creates a mount from the mannequin that will educate Museum visitors about their natural world for years to come. Tell us #HowDoYouMuseum. Photo by Emilio (@eacastel).
