TikTok users are reacting to Dr Seuss’ taxidermy works these days. Viewers think it’s pretty cool, with some even claiming that they want to own one of the art pieces.

Dr Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, passed away in 1991. He was best known for his children’s books.

The writer is back in the news now after his California estate hit the market recently with an asking price of almost $19 million.

A look at Dr Suess’ taxidermy

NPR reported back in 2016 that Dr Suess used to create a series of sculptures before he became a popular children’s author.

The writer and illustrator called his sculptures “Unorthodox Taxidermy.”

For those wondering what taxidermy even is, it is defined by Merriam-Webster as the “art of preparing, stuffing, and mounting the skins of animals and especially vertebrates.”

The NPR report further states that Dr Suess used real horns, antlers and beaks as he created his unique-looking creatures.

The writer’s father was in charge of a zoo and would send him various beaks, horns and antlers of animals who had passed away naturally. Dr Suess used them to create his collection of “Unorthodox Taxidermy.”

DrSuessArt.com notes he made 18 sculptures back in the 1930s.
