Amber Maykut, a professional taxidermist in New York City, talks about her experience as a taxidermist and demonstrates her skills.
Amber sources her taxidermy with frozen feeder animals that would be used to feed reptiles, euthanized animals from the NYC Animal Care Center, deceased animals from zoo and wildlife preserves as well as pet stores, deceased house pets, and leftovers from butchers.
Historically, taxidermy was used to study animals that lived outside one’s geographical region.
