Taxidermy & osteology


Taxidermy, or animal preservation through stuffing, is an artform that transforms an animal hide to preserve it and create a piece of art that is both educational and decorative. The different processes for fur treatment and dressing allow an animal hide to be stabilised and preserved over time.

Depending on the type of project, the pieces or accessories are then used to create a piece with a lifelike appearance. See the photo gallery “How is taxidermy made?


Osteology is the art of reconstituting a skeleton out of real bones. The process includes the various stages of cleaning, whitening, and preserving the bones’ structure before putting them back together and forming a full display. See the photo gallery Works of Osteology.”

Stuffed Animals and Artistic Displays (Taxidermy)

Since its foundation, the BILODEAU Canada team has acquired the necessary equipment and developed its expertise to carry out all the steps of fur transformation. Its fur dressing center gives it the flexibility and autonomy to carry out a multitude of projects, while the expertise of the taxidermy team allows it to create unique pieces as varied as the dreams of its clients.

The realization of unique works is one of the strengths of the company. Creations range from the immortalization of a hunting/fishing trophy to the production of pieces as special as a whale jaw with baleen.

How is it made?

A project to realize?

Our team will be able to accompany and advise you in order to define the concept of your project, and this, as much for the taxidermy piece (posture of the animal, facial expression, etc.) as for the elements of decoration of its environment. We have several productions of scenes that highlight one or more taxidermy pieces.

Our expertise allows the realization of unique scenes. Whether it comes from a fantastic idea such as Santa's sleigh with its reindeer carriage, an educational mission such as a whale jaw, a desire to immortalize a trophy catch, a concept to enhance the decor of a place, etc. We have the means to materialize your projects. Often the constraint is the space you have available to accommodate it.

BILODEAU Canada has carved out a place of choice in the discipline of taxidermy. The realism of the works, the expertise of the team and the time of realization make our reputation. The company is one of the largest taxidermy houses in Canada.
