Cats. If you love them, then you probably won't care if you get them alive or dead, or taxidermied or steampunked. In this case, you'll get a bobcat almost all of the above (since it obviously can't be alive and taxidermied at the same time.)
The back story on this cat is pretty interesting, though. Apparently, taxidermist Phoenix-Cry came across this poorly tanned bobcat hide that had a lot of stretch issues (probably too gross to imagine). It was also missing a lot of fur on half of its face. The creative solution? Add some steampunk elements and the bobcat will end up looking good as new--well, sort of.
You can check out the gallery for more up-close images of the bobcat. I'm a huge dog person, but even I have to admit that this really, really looks cool. Too bad it ain't for sale.
