Tony's Artistic Taxidermy and Museum

The kids enjoyed seeing all the local species and those from around the world up close. The staff was very friendly and took time away from their work to answer any questions. I'm no expert on taxidermy, but the lifelike appearance was amazing!

Tony's Artistic Taxidermy and Museum

This is a neat little taxidermy shop with three employees working in the back room. They have a museum of sorts, with many mounted animals, from a 12-foot alligator to a zebra! Many of the animals are for sale.
