Not to many taxidermists have had the chance to work on a whale replica. Here at Advanced Taxidermy, we have worked on several. The Humpback Whale project is a testament to "no project is too big for Advanced Taxidermy."

This Humpback Whale measured almost 60 feet long and almost 50 feet across the front fins with a girth near 30 feet. Built from scratch, this whale was scaled to exact size of a real whale made from foam, with a wood and metal super structure. All the detail was carved in; from natural skin wrinkles and texture all the way to the flutes and "stove bolts". Once complete, the Humpback Whale recreation had a top coat applied.

Painting took the Advanced Taxidermy team an enormous amount of hours; shading, highlighting and creating valleys and textures. No small detail looked over the recreation was completed with almost 1000 acorn barnacles hand crafted, painted and individually attached.

This recreation is the largest Humpback Whale recreation on display in the world at this time.
