London: American actress Dita Von Teese has revealed her fascination for vintage taxidermy and her unusual collection of stuffed animals.

"I collect vintage taxidermy. I have two big heart-shaped domes filled with birds, I have a bear rug, a monkey and a full ostrich," femalefirst.co.uk quoted the 39-year-old as saying.

"I also have a collection of rare feathers I got from a famous place in France that supplied feathers to Josephine Baker, Mistinguett, and all the showgirls in Paris for 300 years," she added.
