@odditymemes 🙌🏻 Seriously, if you’ve ever bought a bat, piranha, baby duckling/chick, or most insects, you gave money to people who resell animal parts that they ordered in bulk from people who are the reason the animals are dead. Some people get away with saying their items are “ethical” because the animals were “pests” or considered byproducts or the food industry... this is NOT actually ethical because without the human, the animal wouldn’t be dead. The only ethical taxidermy is found on the side of the road or the forest floor. If the piece in question is decades old, that’s almost ethical since it is so far removed from the source... but hell, guys. If I wanted to make money I could go on aliexpress and order baby ducklings and mark up the price too. The difference is I won’t because I truly care about animals more than I care about having a big natural history collection. .
