That's NOT a California Condor. ( is it? )

I've seen California Condors. They ALL have serial numbers on them ( that's how you know you're getting genuine Condor, and not generic buzzard ).

Ha Chaz! I was wondering the same thing - if the bird would have his tags on. The only one I saw, had tags. The tags were diagnostic for a positive ID!

Trust me,, its a "for realsie" Condor lol! Tags were prolly removed during necropsies and tissue exams.. And Thanks Norton!

Igor is also an internationally known "dermist" - and a very cool person. He does a lot of museum work in his off time from Vetrinary work.

i've always wanted to know, why can't humans be mounted? isn't it illegal or something?

Yes actually in most areas mounting of humans is frowned upon ! BUT the Chinese have taken the preservation to fascinating extent with their latest human body exhibits which caught MUCH FLAK while here in the US.!

thier version of "the thinker".. You can see the musculature, the nerves- everything is preserved.

Some of us snuck into the body exhibit late at night while it was in another country. That added an awful layer of creepiness to it. I lasted 10 second and high-tailed it out of there! Bleck!

The human body show made it to Vancouver and I went with a lover of adventure. We both were super creeped out by the examples of plasticised corpses. Free will being what it is the donors of themselves were presented in various flattering and ridiculous poses.

I was under the impression the work was German, not Chinese.

So Ron, I have nothing but fascination for what you do. does the modern polymer injection technique to achieve the withered but detailed EX-people have any bearing on your classic technique for taxidermy ?

Hey Ron, I walk by those at the airport all the time. Nice work.

I will appreciate them even more next time by.

Jim, Not really- "standard" taxidermy deals only with the skins which are tanned to a leather. I do often use the carcasses as a 3-d reference for carving the mannikins though! The carcasses also tell us about muscles, tendons etc.

and Rielly NICE HAZEL-HARE LOL! Kinda like the Lion Pedastal to Go-B.

Shack, from what ive been told that sheep exhibit is going to be moved due to TSA needeing more touchin and squeezin room...

Ron,

I guess we wouldn't want the TSA doing what they do with sheep around.
