I was surfing the web the other day researching vintage uses of crepe paper and came across (on ebay) an adorable little duck wearing a green crepe paper hat with flowers. It was so cute and fluffy and so realistic looking. Up until that point I had only looked at the photo so after reading the description, I no longer found the duckling cute...it looked real because it was real. Ewwww. Taxidermy is a fascinating science but I'd prefer to view its subjects in a museum, not in my home wearing an Easter bonnet.
