Taxidermy

The art of taxidermy started about 4000 years ago, because Man has always been passionate about preserving the bodies and part of the animals that surround him.

Modern taxidermy is a high-level artistic expression, from simple bones to the most beautiful animal perfectly prepared and with full guarantee of remaining for many years.

One of a Kind Shop is specialized in this area and over time we will offer a wide variety of pieces.

All of them will be only offered under the legal conditions of the market, which assures that all species subject to some specific CITES appendix will be sold with its own CITES certificate.

The longfin mako shark closely resembles its shortfin counterpart, but possesses distinct characteristics such as larger pectoral fins, dark coloration around the mouth, and larger eyes. Shortfin makos are commonly found in offshore temperate and tropical seas across the globe, while the closely related longfin makos are typically observed in the Gulf Stream or warmer offshore waters like New Zealand and Maine.

These pelagic creatures inhabit depths ranging from the surface to 150 meters, often far from the shore but occasionally venturing closer to islands, inlets, or coastal areas. Notably, the Mako Shark is one of the few known endothermic shark species, capable of maintaining a body temperature higher than the surrounding water. It tends to avoid waters colder than 16°C.
