The documentary from Lutz Dammbeck shows the operation of taxidermy as performed on a small rodent. From the careful removal of the insides to the drying of the disinfected fur with a vacuum cleaner, the focus is kept on the hands of the taxidermist. If you had previously thought that a skeleton was preserved within stuffed animals you can see here that it is not the case. The whole animal is rebuilt from the hide.
