Chengdu: Bad taxidermy

It’s cold, but creepy

Like I mentioned, we spent two hours at the Chengdu Panda Base checking out the pandas. Thing was, we had three hours to spend in the park before the van was due to take us back into the city. So we had an hour to while away … and we were getting cold.

There was a panda museum on the grounds, so we decided to check that out, if only to warm up a little. Unfortunately, this being Sichuan, the museum was open to the outside and there was no heat. So warming up was out. But! They had some terrible taxidermy on display!

OK, so not really an upside. But we got some great pictures out of it. (FYI: We spent the rest of that hour in the park’s coffee shop, which was also open to the cold, but was at least serving hot beverages.)

This taxidermy is bad.
More bad taxidermy!
