    I recently lost my left leg above the knee, and it is ready to be picked up. I am looking for a taxidermist to preserve it, I would like it shaped so I can make a Christmas Story lamp. Not a joke, cash in hand. Will be picking up leg in Seattle.

    "As far as I know, it is illegal to taxidermy or mount a human being in the US. Human skin discolors greatly after the preservation process and stretches a lot more than animal skin."

    This could be wrong though. One of the seasoned guys probably knows better.

    If legal at all i would have it freeze dried for the best outcome you could expect. I would think if the doctors are giving it back to you then they know the laws and it would not be a problem for you to have it. I would make sure you get some paperwork from them showing beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was actually your leg you have in your possession
