Taxidermists

Work Environment

Most taxidermists work 40 hours a week, although overtime is not uncommon during certain times of the year. Taxidermists with their own shops may have to work long hours, especially when first starting out. They often work with strong chemicals, glues, hand and power tools, and possibly diseased animals. They can sit or stand if working on smaller animals. However, creating larger mammal displays requires more physical work, such as climbing or squatting.
