German week continues

Not officially announced I know, but that's how it worked out. Our tribute to all things (well, actors, directors and torture anyway) German continues with a bit of synergy with a previous post. Today: German taxidermy. Here we see some fine examples of die Tiere aus die Ost from a wildlife museum in some German castle I forget the name of.Here we see a particularly fine diorama illustrating the old German addage "Wherever there's mushrooms and moths, weasels are not far behind".

And what survey of German taxidermy would be complete without the classic "death rattle of the majestic elk":Next time: wild boars and dangerous birds!
