At the Secret Science Club’s 5th Annual Taxidermy Contest on Wednesday night, contestants marched their stuffed friends at the stage at the Bell House to a packed room. To give the contest some context, two lectures opened the evening, one from Melissa Milgrom, author of Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy, and Mike Zohn, host of Oddities, a new show on the Discovery Channel.

Some entries were disqualified because of legal issues. One contestant brought in a puffin from Iceland. He wrote on his customs form that it was a toy bird.
