Recent Past - Comments & Questions we had,.. and Answers to:

I like my taxidermist,...but I don't like his sheep work.
- Taxidermy is not easy,  parts are generic.   Generic parts and Taxidermists lack of anatomy understanding , brings forth the
  caricature and abstract [C&A] renditions in taxidermy. Taxidermy work with lots of anatomy mistakes is easier and faster.
  Years ago I heard a taxidermist say, "It's all they want".  Taxidermists too are quick to learn consumers highly support very
  mistake prone work.

You Specialize with them.
