    I suggest you see the current work in person.
    (any taxidermist you are considering)

    I have seen some of their work and it looks good. I was just checking to see if anyone else has used them and had good/bad thoughts about them.

    Have you seen it in person or pictures?
    Those shots of mounts on the wall can let you screen the absolute horrors.

    I ask to get some real close up pictures (in focus) of the eyes, nose and mouth.
    Then visit the shop in Africa if I can.

    I hope someone has used them and you get some satisfactory reports.

    You should always try to visit the taxidermist you are going to use personally.Your PH should not have a problem taking you there.
