While some taxidermists are meticulously preserving our animals for future generations, others prefer to color outside the lines of their chosen art form, creating bizarre and monstrous creatures better suited to nightmares than museums.

Crappy Taxidermy, the latest on the ever-growing list of one-note Tumblr blogs, logs the most egregious crimes against dead animal skins. In addition to pumps made from former hedgehogs and a truly disturbing number of kitten tea parties, there are the creature-makers, who transform once-normal animals into mermen, deer people, double headed critters, and cryptozoological monsters, with varying degrees of expertise.
