How to Build a Wildebeest

Step 1. Take a wild guess.

“The Art of Taxidermy,” 1898, by John Rowley can be found in its entirety here.  The text is fascinating.  I just might download it so I can repair my jackalope head.

    Does that helicopter thing play Wagner? That would be cool. ANd thanks for the education on taxidermy–I had no idea it was a simple two-step process.

    cbull– Yeah, but you gotta turn your speakers up to 11. As for the taxidermy, the toughest part is mixing the paint colors just right.
