Gryphon 1 by Cassandra-Leopardess Gryphon 1 by Cassandra-Leopardess
Here is my pet gryphon :D
This is actually a taxidermy piece made from different critters. I used some chicken feet, a rabbit pelt, and..a dead bird I found. The beak and eyes were hand made by me. I also added some shiny things just to make it look pretty :D






(I did Not kill or harm any animals to make this....so please donít leave any rude comments)

Dai. You deserve a few compliments. ^^ Who woud've thought to use diffrent parts? Is it really soft from the pelts? Do you still have it? Or did it rot away?

Thank you so much :D
Yes it’s quite soft to touch and I still have it.
The whole thing has been preserved so it does not smell and it will never rot, that's what makes it a taxidermy piece. The feet were preserved in acetone and the rabbit pelts were tanned. Also the wings were preserved with borax.

I've never seen anything like it still. XD One of a kind? Maybe you could turn it into an heirloom and attack a story to it. XD Or not? I just make an idiot of myself almost all the time, so just feel free to tell me if I'm begining to act stupid. XD

lol I think you’re funny :D
Maybe in the story I could write that it comes to life at night,
and that would freak out the person owning it =P
that’s if I was to give it to some one...
or in years to come, some one inherits it from me.

Maybe it's the guardian of the family who owns it and at night it protects everyone from the shadows under the bed. XD
