Anthropomorphic taxidermy–the practice of mounting and displaying taxidermied animals as if they were humans or engaged in human activities–was a popular art form during the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The best known practitioner of the art form is British taxidermist Walter Potter who displayed his pieces–which included such elaborate tableaux as The Death of Cock Robin, The Kitten Wedding, and The Kitten Tea Party–in his own museum of curiosities.

An extremely rare narwhal skull with double tusks. There are only about 10 other bones like this in the world. Narwhals are a rare arctic whale. It is challenging enough to see one with one tusk. It is almost an impossibility to actually catch one with two tusks.  Biologists estimate that there are only 1 in every 1000 Narwhal who actually have a double tusk. They are uncertain of why this phenomenon exists. They are even more uncertain why these sword like tusks occur on the whale.

rare narwhal skull with double tusks. Narwhals, a rare variety of arctic whale, are known for their long singular tusks - biologists estimate that double tusks only occur in one in a thousand narwhals; they are uncertain why this phenomenon exists.

The process varies from taxidermist to taxidermist, and also depends on the animal being mounted. Taxidermist Amanda Sutton doesn’t use animals that were killed for taxidermy, instead she uses reptile feed, road kill and animals that died naturally and creates taxidermy to preserve the beauty of the animal (a bathing mouse from Ms Sutton's Amanda's Autopsies collection is pictured)
