Natural History Museum | Taxidermy

Taxidermy (from the Greek for arrangement of skin[1]) is the art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals (especially vertebrates) for display (e.g. as hunting trophies) or for other sources of study. Taxidermy can be done on all vertebrate species of animals, including mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians. A person who practices taxidermy is called a taxidermist. Refer to source.

We visited Carnegie Museum of Natural History last spring and paid a hundred something for registration. We planned on going to that museum yesterday but unfortunately my daughter and I got up so late. Anyway, the picture above was taken during our last visit at the museum. Pretty cool eh! I am not really a big fan of science but i like to learn about it.

If you visit Pittsbugh, you should try to look around at the museum in the area. Visit Natural History Museums, History Museums as one of the attraction in Pittsburgh. Fascinating exploration of the Earth Sciences, Life Sciences and Anthropology through dazzling exhibits and hands-on displays the whole family can enjoy.
