I'm a fan of niche competitions—I've been going to the Classic Tetris World Championship for years. I just learned that there is such a thing as the World Taxidermy Championships. Here's a lovely video showing some of the competitors at this year's show, the judging process, and ultimately the winners. Position your magnifying lenses and enjoy:

Note: There's a whole side event for fish carving that wasn't shown in this video. Wow.
