Everyone has had a loving pet at one point or another in their life. Whether is was a cat or a dog or a tortoise or an alligator or a goose—everyone has that special animal they hold dear to their heart. With that being said, some of the people who use Krrb like to take these animals after they die and make them live forever! That’s right folks, we’ve got some great looking taxidermy going on here and you need to see it. Consider an early Halloween treat!

Set of 4 Alligator Paws in Carlisle, PA

Let’s start this article off right with some alligator paws! They’re real, they’re scaly, and they come with no other part of the alligator. I don’t know what one would do with these decoratively but I’m sure could figure something out! They’d look great on a mantle or an entertainment center, maybe? At the very least, use them to hand out Halloween candy to trick or treaters! $72.

Alligator Taxidermy Head in Chicago, IL

You know how that last bit of taxidermy needs? The four alligator paws just isn’t much without a taxidermy alligator head! All you need now to make that Frankenstein’s Monster type Alligator is a body, tail, and like a brain and heart or whatever. Collect them all because you’re well on your way! $750.

Real Hornet Nest in Chicago, IL

Hey! You know one hornet is scary and so a bunch living together is even scarier? Yeah! A hornet’s nest! Why don’t we take one of those and put them in your home as decoration? It’s not like any hornets are left in there. Although we’re not sure. Only kidding! It comes in a display case so if there are any left they’ll be stuck in a glass box but still in your home. Got the heebie-jeebies, yet? $60.

Full Body Tortoise Taxidermy in Manhattan, NY

It’s the classic fable of the tortoise and the hare except there is no hare and the tortoise is dead and stuffed. I’d say this is probably the least scariest taxidermy of the bunch but still weird to think at some point this thing was alive and moving. You know who’d probably like this? That kid that likes turtles. $250.

Vintage 1950’s Taxidermy Flying Goose / Duck in Chicago, IL

Duck, duck, goose. We don’t know if this is a duck or a goose but I’m going to go ahead and assume if you’re looking to hang a dead bird in your home, you may not have a preference. Unless you’re trying to set up a 3D Duck Hunt exhibit with a taxidermy dog then it might be an issue. It’s pretty cool how it looks like it’s flying though. You just don’t to run into it in the middle of the night. $75.

I’m not really into the whole “dead stuffed animal in my house watching over me at all times” thing but for those of you who are—here’s a wide selection of taxidermy on Krrb. If you find or are selling anything else that’s dead and stuffed, please feel free to let me know @MrChrisDonahue.
