Los Angeles: Actress Amanda Seyfried finds taxidermy an amazing way to look after animals after they are dead. The 26-year-old is a huge fan of taxidermy and owns a number of creatures including an owl and a miniature pony.

"When taxidermy is done well it`s an amazing piece of art. I love animals and they`re very easy to look after when they`re dead. I recently decided I was going to start building a parliament of owls because I only have one," a website has quoted Seyfried as saying.

"I bought him in Paris. He was sitting with every kind of animal you can possibly imagine - giraffes, zebras, scorpions - and they were all sitting in this incredible installation and that`s when I decided that this was going to be a life-long hobby," she added.
