We have a huge warehouse of animals, birds, fish, reptiles, and rodents -- and we have a professional taxidermist to assist in customizing your orders.

Bischoff's Taxidermy was founded in 1922 by Al Bischoff. The original location was on Sunset Blvd. in Los Angeles California. Bischoff created a major taxidermy studio in the heart of Hollywood for hunters and many stars of the era. At Bischoff's Taxidermy, Roy Rogers' Trigger was taxidermied. Over the years, Bischoff accumulated a huge collection of his own taxidermy of birds and animals from around the world. Bischoff's has changed hands over the years, relocating to San Fernando Road in Burbank and then to our current location at 54 E. Magnolia, Burbank, California. Today this beautiful collection of our fur and feathered friends still exists and is shared by Bischoff's with you.
