Note – This bird died of natural causes in captivity and was prepared by a licensed (award-winning) taxidermist
Our first reaction to seeing this piece of taxidermy was something close to moonwalking around the store. This absolutely gorgeous piece of taxidermy is the White-cheeked Turaco that can be found in parts of Western Africa. Just like all of our other bird taxidermy, this bird died of natural causes in captivity. No wonder why our skilled taxidermist has won many prizes, as this is yet another stunning piece. For example, the orange droplets around the birds eye are not the actual flesh, but made from epoxy fiber and carefully mounted on with tweezers.
