For some, it is an art; for others, not so much. However, displaying the preserved skin of an animal is a preference shared by many people worldwide.

You can better understand this through our collection of free taxidermy books. Taxidermy is not a very common practice, but it has true followers in various parts of the world. It is done for artistic purposes or as a hobby.

Taxidermy has evolved over time, and those who practice it have worked to improve the techniques of preservation, enabling the study and conservation of species.

Most taxidermists work with mammalian animals, and the preserved bodies are exhibited in museums or private collections. The word “taxidermy” is derived from the Greek words “taxis,” meaning “arrangement,” and “dermis,” meaning “skin.” Etymologically, it refers to arranging the skin, in this case, that of the animal.

A taxidermist must possess certain knowledge, such as dissection, skin treatment, sculpture, and anatomy. We invite you to take a look at our selection of over 15 free taxidermy books and articles in PDF format.

Through the detailed observation of bony structures, muscles, and internal organs of different species, taxidermists acquire the necessary knowledge to be able to reconstruct and naturally preserve specimens.
