A Gift to a Swedish King: A Stuffed Lion (3 pics)

Posted in RANDOM       22 Aug 2011       13730       6

This lion was a gift to a Swedish king after being killed in Africa in 1731. When a body of the dead lion arrived in Stockholm it was nothing more than skin and bones, and considering that the taxidermist had never seen a lion before, it was not an easy job for him to do. This is how he imagined the lion and that’s why it looks like it does, though he put a considerable amount of effort into the job.

He might have never seen a Lion but if the corpse was just skin and bones, the correct teeth would have been there.
