Welcome to the Etsy home of Morbid Curiosities Taxidermy. Here you will find a wonderfully unique selection of taxidermy couture as well as unique rogue taxidermy and anthropomorphic pieces.

All pieces are created by hand and, unless otherwise stated, all taxidermy work is undertaken personally be me meaning that each piece is unique. I have always loved and respected animals, so it is very important to me to use only ethically sourced animals in my work. All of the animals used in my pieces were either pre-frozen for reptile food, recycled antiques or are surplus/unwanted parts from other industries. No animals were killed specifically for use in my work

I am happy to take commissions if you have an idea for a piece of taxidermy or a custom couture item. Provided it can be produced within my code of ethics, I'd love to work with you to make your vision a reality. Message me to talk about ideas and pricing.

All items sent to a USA address will have a USPS tracking number included at no extra charge, the seller accepts no responsibility for an item lost by USPS.
I currently only accept payments made via PayPal in USD ($). Payment should be made at time of purchase, your order will be cancelled and the item relisted if payment is not made within this time.
I ship Monday to Friday via USPS Priority Mail. All items shipped within the USA are tracked and I include the tracking number in your shipping confirmation email. Insurance and international tracking is available at extra charge, message me if you would like either.

Additional policies and FAQs
Please bare in mind when commissioning custom work that, just as every animal is slightly different, no two taxidermy pieces will look exactly the same. Each piece is unique.

Most of the animals used in my work are considered 'domestic' animals and as such pose no issue for export purposes. It is however, recommended that you check your local import regulations to ensure no issues upon receipt, as the seller will accept no responsibility if your purchase is prohibited in your state or country and is seized.
