From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:20 pm on 27 October 2015

For more than fifty years, taxidermist John McCosh has been practcing the art of making lifeless animals appear lifelike and animated. John's collection is housed in a purpose-built log cabin in South Wairarapa - the Kahutara Taxidermy Gallery - which has been welcoming visitors for more than 30 years. Visitors can see an Arctic wolf, a roaring lion and a prickly porcupine among the hundreds of animals from around the world on display there.
