Taxidermy Curl-crested toucan

Taxidermy Curl-crested toucan

Latin: Pteroglossus beauharnaesii

Size: 39x26x16cm
Description: The curl-crested toucan is one of the world's most extraordinary birds. The curls from which it derives it's name appear exactly as if they are made from tightly rolled pieces of black plastic. It is very unusual to find specimens of this remarkable creature and this one is in excellent condition preserved beneath a glass dome.

We have bought major collections from museums and private collectors.

Taxidermy law can be complicated.
We make it our business to know the laws surrounding the trade, keeping up to date with changes in current legislation so you can buy in confidence.

The Old Bird Room does not source modern taxidermy specimens that have been killed for the purpose of taxidermy. Our modern taxidermy is mainly roadkill and catkill as these are sadly the top two threats to British wildlife. We also get animals that have died of old age, largely from zoos and falconers.

Antique pieces for us are another matter. Although some of these old specimens were hunted, we see no harm in trading them today.
Destroying them will not bring the animal back.
