To be fair, there probably weren't too many people, let alone taxidermists in 18th century Sweden who had seen a lion.
 
2011-04-10 07:18:43 PM
To also be fair, there wasn't a single animal that taxidermist had ever seen that would have led him to believe that was a good idea.

From the translated blog entry:

The translation is a hoot, besides.

The problem was that when the curator was responsible was the only thing left of a lion skin and a Trees and Young Trees of different bones. This, combined with the curator had only the vaguest idea how the lions really looks like, did that the once stately lion head has the following appearance stuffed:

I just don't get it. Even if you had never seen a lion before, why would you think its tongue sticks out and its eyes are crossed? Also, from what I've read, the taxidermist was given the bones, so wouldn't the teeth be left in with the skull?
Looks like the taxidermist was doing a bit of trollin'.

I always like the 'experimental' taxidermy done around the 19th century.

They were making fish with fur, , monkeys that lived in the water and other animals that did not exist as high concept works of art, and just dares. Some were really, really well done.

Because of this the duck-billed platypus was rejected as a real animal.

If I remember correctly (and I'm probably not) the flaring tongue was a sign of ferocity and virility.

Er, well, Mr Anchovy ... I'm afraid what you've got hold of there is an anteater.

A what?

An anteater. Not a lion. You see a lion is a huge savage beast, about five feet high, ten feet long, weighing about four hundred pounds, running forty miles per hour, with masses of sharp pointed teeth and nasty long razor-sharp claws that can rip your belly open before you can say 'Eric Robinson', and they look like this.

A similar story is told about the lion sculptures flanking the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, London. The artist, Sir Edwin Landseer, had never seen a lion when he was commissioned to create them in 1867 so he was provided with the semi-dessicated corpse of one to use as his model. It didn't work out very well, so he ended up using his St. Bernard instead. The result is decidedly canine, especially the paws:

What's even weirder than the electroreception thing (which sharks and some fish have too) is this quote from wiki: "When swimming it can be distinguished from other Australian mammals by the absence of visible ears." If you're close enough to notice a lack of ears, then I'd have thought the duck's bill combined with the fur would've been a bit of a giant farking clue.

cryinoutloud: GungFu: WTF is this shiat?

The first one is a platypus. It's for reals. And the second one is a jackalope, but they only live on our walls, despite what some people have heard.


When we first got married, my wife and I stayed in Arizona and the hotel we stayed at had a little museum of local artifacts and such. In the museum they had a jackalope hanging on the wall with a similar description. I had my wife convinced they were real. To be honest, if I hadn't seen them for sale in a novelty catalog years earlier, I might have bought it too. Years later, she brought it up during small talk at a business meeting. I don't know how the topic came up but was she mad at me.

Oznog: postnobills: A similar story is told about the lion sculptures flanking the base of Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, London. The artist, Sir Edwin Landseer, had never seen a lion when he was commissioned to create them in 1867 so he was provided with the semi-dessicated corpse of one to use as his model. It didn't work out very well, so he ended up using his St. Bernard instead. The result is decidedly canine, especially the paws:

talulahgosh: is this a twilight reference?


In case it really is that obscure, it's from *this* show:
www.ancientscrossroads.com

In the episode I'm referring, the main characters are mentored by a State Alchemist, who is faced with a deadline to create a talking chimera. If he fails, he will lose all his research funding, his job/title, and his home. He becomes desperate, and does the unthinkable: he permanently *fuses* his 4-year-old daughter with the family dog.

As the main character is beating the crap out of the guy for doing that, I sat there wishing I could strangle the life out of him myself.

/I think I get too emothionally involved in fictional characters, at times.

Ahh, don't feel bad. I was watching the finale of the 5 part Mildred Pierce miniseries on HBO the other night. *SPOILER I SUPPOSE* when she strangles her daughter at the end all I could think was "FINALLY!"

Looks like a picture for a "Where Are They Now" story on the Banana Splits.

No mention of Wolpertingers yet? (German version of the Jackalope, from what I can work out).

Why were you eating toast through your nose?
