For me, the real thing is not my bag. I remember a cow skin rug that belonged to my father that we had on the living room floor when I was little and even at such a young age it made me feel a little uncomfortable to touch it, never mind a real stuffed animal. I still skip that part of the museum and yes, I do feel a mixture of creeped-out shame if I ever come across any.
That said, I don't object to a little fauxidermy, for the sheer quirk factor. At the very least, it's guilt free! If you're the kind of person who loves to make a statement then perhaps this is for you? I've picked the best of the bunch. What do you think?

So tell me. Fauxidermy? Would you seriously consider it for your home? Do you already have some? Or is it the "stuff" of nightmares?
