There's weird taxidermy, weirder taxidermy, and weirdest taxidermy. There's even weird taxidermy auctions. But, all in all, these animals are the same old stuff. Lisa Black however has come up with a new spin on an old concept - steampunk taxidermy. Some images may be NSFW.

Lets not forget the bad taxidermy and the crappy taxidermy.
But if that steampunk link interests you, this is even better.

The one that looks like a bunny exploding from inside a bunny would have deserved to be in John Carpenter's The Thing. Damn creepy.

That crappy taxidermy seems to have some valid applications of the (art?science?mental illness?)

Namely, this and this piece

I am ready for the moment when this steampunk business jumps the shark already.

Can this be that moment?

There is also mythological taxidermy.

Not until Fox nets record Nielson numbers for the season premiere of "So You Think You're Steampunk?"

I wonder what all the steam-punk kids will move on to when they realize this horse has been thoroughly beaten? and had its innards replaced with gears

I did not find the Lisa Black images to be Not Safe For Work. Of course, I work in a secret underground lair.

Taxidermy pretty much reached its peak with the Slam Dunkin' Wildcat.

I taxidermied my own Halloween mask this year.

Is this stuff crappy by the internal standards of taxidermy, or is it just crappy because it's taxidermy?

I really can't tell. It all looks more or less the standard range to me.

Taxidermy absolutely reached its peak with W├╝rsa by Daniel Firman. When I saw this for the first time, I held my breath for minutes.
