Taxidermy Tuesday. Since everyone seemed to love the fossil of the Terror Bird, we thought we would show you one fleshed out by our taxidermist Leon Pray. Though it is not exactly taxidermy, models are often when either an animals skin is unusable or we don’t have a full specimen. That bird still looks angry.
