…Dr. Seuss was a creator of animals?

Seuss Animals

In the early 1930s, Dr. Seuss started a strange and artsy hobby called Unorthodox Taxidermy. The mixed media sculptures were designed to look like the heads you see mounted as trophies after a successful hunting trip, but with a twist. Instead of animals you’d see at the zoo or on an Animal Planet TV show, these creatures came straight from the mixed up mind of Seuss himself. Using real appendages such as beaks, antlers and horns taken from deceased Forest Park Zoo animals where Seuss’ father was superintendent, Seuss created these cartoonish yet strikingly realistic looking animal conceptions with names like “Semi-Normal Green-Lidded Fawn” and Two Horned Drouberhannis”. Sadly, the collection contains neither a red fish nor a blue fish.
