Hmm whilst I have no problem with taxedermy of an animal that has died of natural causes and is going to be used as a display to educate people, like in museums etc, I do not understand why anyone would want or let anyone turn their pet into a skin, I don't see the pupose.
It's not like when hunters turn animals they have killed into pelts to wear, who can wear a bird skin?
My concern is where is he actually getting these from, especially the lilac breasted roller I spotted, the antlers and horns and the macaw feathers?
If anyone in that general area can contact CITES and see what their laws are regarding the sale of the skins and feathers of such endangered animals I would be interested to know the answers as I doubt he has any licensing or proof of where they came from. . .
