EXCERPTS >|< Infantile paralysis; child walking on hands and feet (1887)
An animated GIF of a paralytic child walking on four, created from Plate 539 by Eadweard Muybridge (1887) in Animal locomotion : an electro-photographic investigation of consecutive phases of animal movements, 1872-1885.
The Plate 539 was also the source of inspiration for a couple of paintings by Francis Bacon.
The Paralytic Child Walking GIF by E. Muybridge will be soon available on our handmade analog GIF player, The Giphoscope.
Old taxidermy moose with exposed manikin. Mounted in 1910.
Older taxidermy mounts relied on forms made out of the animals skull and a wrapping (newspapers, sawdust, etc). In modern day taxidermy the skin is stretched over a pre-made foam manikin.
Deer taxidermy form.
Whoa this is so cool.
I’ve heard of deer and rabbits themselves eating meat at times, not a cow though. Pretty awesome. This is pretty metal right here.

Here’s a video of a cow CHASING DOWN a baby chick to eat it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9vxHN8_jSE
