You won’t know whether to laugh or cry at these spectacularly bad attempts at taxidermy, brought to you courtesy of the hit website crappytaxidermy.com. The site’s plethora of bad taxidermy examples – including a squirrel riding a rattlesnake like a cowboy, and various anatomically imaginative renderings of all creatures great and small – have proved hugely popular. Here the very best of the worst stuffed animals are brought together in one full-colour volume; with additional features including a DIY ‘Stuff Your Own Mouse’ lesson, and an author’s introduction to the craze for getting stuffed.
