France. Ile de France. Paris. The Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature (Museum of Hunting and Nature) is a private museum. The museum is organized around three themes: weapons and other instruments of hunting such as guns and horns; hunting products and dead animals displayed in the Trophy Room, such as a leopard, chamois and deer,… The leopard is one of the five "big cats" in the genus Panthera and a member of the family Felidae. The chamois is a species of goat-antelope native to mountains in Europe. Taxidermy is the preserving of an animal's body via stuffing or mounting for the purpose of display or study. Animals are often, but not always, portrayed in a life-like state. 21.04.17  © 2017 Didier Ruef
