    The photo taken on Apr. 10, 2012 shows a semi-finished egrets specimens at fuzhou taxidermy company workshop.

    Wildlife specimens manufacturing in China has 116 years of history. Many specimens companies can now only buy animals died of natural causes from the zoo or pet market to produce specimens. So today, the company's raw material is very scarce. Most of the specimens are used for public scientific research. Private collection market is very limited. That makes this craft hard to be passed along.
