Dr Seuss - unorthodox taxidermy

With his oversized beak and disheveled hair, the Andoluvian Grackler abounds with Seussian personality. For years Geisel’s father, a zoo superintendent, sent Ted beaks, horns and antlers from deceased animals at the Springfield Massachusetts Forest Park Zoo. In the 1930s, Ted created sculptures based on what he thought these animals would want to be reincarnated as. He called this his “Collection of Unorthodox Taxidermy.”
