Now, that simply doesn't seem to cut it anymore. If you want an animal on your wall, it's got to be at the very least something like a rhino or a zebra. Or even better, a crocheted multi-coloured striped zebra. If that's what your living room has been lacking for all this time, Anne-Claire Petit has come to the rescue. This zebra is part of her range for the Conran Shop and is yours for £125.
It seems fair to say the trend for faux taxidermy has reached a fantastical new level. Truly fantastical if you look at the range of felt heads stocked at Chelsea Toys which includes the unicorn pictured. Probably on a fantasy budget too at £80.
If you simply want to upgrade from a standard stag to something more exotic, Rockett St George are selling this lovingly hand-painted polar bear for £140. (And is it just me, or is there something in its haunted expression that reminds you of Don Draper? Oh, that is just me.)
The prize in any trophy hunters cap surely has to be this T-Rex wall sculpture, available from Urban Outfitters. It's made from polyresin and the sales blurb tells me that the simple act of mounting it on your wall will make you the "manliest man ever". Or just £80 poorer.
