Met these two (four?) in downtown Albuquerque the other day. They were dealing with a homeless man peeing in a doorway not far from the high school. Despite my inopportune arrival they were terribly polite and took time to answer my questions.
On a wander recently I came across American Wild Life Taxidermy. The sign on the door said ‘Open’ so I decided it was an opportunity not to be missed. The owner seemed busy but kindly let me see what they were working on. He led me back into the shop where a younger man was removing the flesh from a large (and clearly fresh) pelt with a circular electric blade.
That’s Stewie, he passed away earlier this year, but what a brilliant animal! Anteater girl has a flickr account and loads of other Anteater As Pet YouTube videos like Stewie runs!, Stewie and his squeaky ball!, Stewie walks on two legs! and Anteaters are on my sofa! (with a Wet Wet Wet soundtrack).
