Taxidermy has been around for more than 100 years, but, unlike the animals who are preserved, it shows no sign of dying.
Some people prefer to preserve animals looking as normal as possible, but Audra Kunkle, star of the Science Channel series "Oddities San Francisco" likes to put her own touch on each creature she stuffs.
That means making the critters wear human clothes or play banjos.
It's not easy, but the hardest part is finding military outfits that will fit a bird.
"Oddities San Francisco" airs Saturday nights. In the meantime, check out a gallery of Kunkle's more bizarre creations.
