The most striking thing about taxidermy is that it is so far removed from what most of us think. That stuffed deer head on the wall? Entertainment. The work done by the taxidermists in this episode, like George Dante, who preserved the remains of the famous Galapagos tortoise Lonesome George, or Allis Markham, who specialises in hummingbirds? That’s art, science and imagination. That is taxidermy.
