Taxidermy produces a life-like three-dimensional representation of an animal for permanent display. The actual skin of the animal may or may not be used. Many taxidermy procedures involve removing the natural skin from the animal and putting it over an artificial body. Taxidermists Hunting Outdoors Recreation.
Taxidermy (from the Greek for arrangement of skin ) is the art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals (especially vertebrates ) for display (e. (wikipedia)
- Wikipedia: Taxidermy is the preserving of an animal's body via stuffing or mounting for the purpose of display or study. Animals are often, but not always, portrayed in a lifelike state. The word taxidermy refers to the process of preserving the animal, but the word is also used to describe the end product, which are often called "mounts". The word taxidermy is derived from the Greek words "taxis" and "derma". Taxis means "to move", and "derma" means "skin". The word taxidermy translates to "arrangement of skin". Taxidermy is practiced primarily on vertebrates but can also be done to larger insects and arachnids under some circumstances. Taxidermy takes on a number of forms and purposes, including natural history museum displays, hunting trophies, study skins, and is sometimes used as a means to memorialize pets. A person who practices taxidermy is called a taxidermist.
