Ethics Policy - Animals
Where do you source your animal specimens from?
Whilst our animals come from all different places, we can assure you that nothing was killed with profit in mind.
As you may have noticed, a lot of our the taxidermy pieces we have on offer are antiques. These pieces come to us through markets, deceased estates, donated, etc. Some are even from our personal collection. All pieces are hygienic and in better than decent condition considering some of their ages. Whilst we do not have a backstory for some of these pieces, we believe they are better in a home than in a dumpster somewhere unloved.
Pelts / Fur
Unless they are vintage pieces, our pelts and furs are by-products of pest control and the meat industry.
Wet Specimens & Diaphonised Specimens
Our wet specimens & diaphonised specimens are the newest additions to the oddities range on our website. These specimens are obtained through breeders or have been donated to us. Often breeders experience stillbirths and will discard of the animal, instead we choose to preserve it forever. Another way we obtain animals is through pest control and pet food stores.
Here are Oddity Bug Club, we have started processing our own bones. We collect fleshy bones from farmers and clean them up for our in house dermestid beetle colony. These beetles will eat away at the dried flesh and leave us with the bones. After that, we will whiten and degrease the bones as necessary.
