Some of the taxidermy was here before. Some was added in the recent renovation. None of the actual dioramas were here before.

A Raccoon.

A big White Tail (?) Buck.

A HUGE Bison, mebees, 6’, at the withers.

A Black Bear. Not to be mistaken for a Brown Bear. These animals still live in reasonable plentitude in our local mountains. They’re as docile as kittens. I’ve been told by rangers that they walk right up to them, and ask to be petted. Or, mebees, fed?

A Peacock, standing on a really out-of-place Chinese column. In case you’re unaware, Peafowl are indigenous to Southern California, though rarely, anymore, seen in the wild.

An oddly fat Coyote, chasing a goatalope. (I’ve never seen a fat Coyote. And, I’ve seen a lot of Coyotes. In the Mojave Desert, where they subsist on bugs and lizards, and don’t have the energy to chase anything. Even the Jackrabbits are safe there.

An African (?) Lion.

A chainsaw-sculpted bear.

Next – and last – the walk back to where I parked.
