Hilariously Bad Lion Taxidermy

Behold, the Derp Of The Jungle! In its own way, it’s quite impressive.

In 1731, King Fredrick I of Sweden either killed or received a lion. The translation is kind of spotty.

At any rate, only the skin and bones made it back to Stockholm from Africa because dead lion flesh surprisingly fails to travel well. And with Google Image Search almost three hundred years from being invented, the Royal Taxidermist had never seen an actual lion. But he put his best effort forth with the information at hand.

This is the result. The Derp of the Jungle can still be seen in all his glory at Gripsholm Castle.
