The 2017 World Taxidermy Championships

Every year, the world's top animal stuffers and fish carvers meet up to show off their skills and compete for cash prizes.  Emily Graslie of Brain Scoop works at the Field Museum in Chicago, but she was excited to attend the World Taxidermy & Fish Carving Championships in Peoria last month. Warning: contains dead animals.

Graslie can't contain her enthusiasm as she wanders among freeze-dried fish, animals made from completely different animals, recreations from scenes in nature, creatures in funny poses, and animals the judges had to look up to see what they're supposed to look like.  -via Mental Floss
