Fantastic shop which specializes in Taxidermy. Many items on display, including owls, peacocks, tigers, polar bears, bat skeletons, rat skeletons, hens, lions, bears, bugs, butterflies.....

Fascinating to visit and look around. Charming staff who are both friendly and informative.

You could walk past this small upmarket gardening shop without noticing. But go in, then go upstairs. Is it a zoo? Is it an educational resource? Is it a taxidermist's dream incarnate? You decide.

Even if you think you only have limited time in Paris, and are rushing to do the so-called TOP attractions -- make a detour for Deyrolle. This is absolutely amazing and you will see nothing like it anywhere. The only way to improve this place is to allow photos be taken (sadly I do not have any to remember this fantastic place by)... this was close to the Bon Marche Grand Epicerie, do go and take it all in. What an amazing collection!

This is a Paris institution that families have shared with their children for years. Extraordinary taxidermy-lions, bears, giraffes, insects and birds. Great books. never seen a shop like this. Great fun.
Just off the Blvd. Saint Germain on Rue du Bac.

Enter into this toney upscale gardeners supply shop, with a twist. It seems very lively... yet you sense there is something else going on here. It is too small for them to do the level of business that this location would require. That's because you haven't seen half of the deal here. Walk up those alluring curved stairs. No that is not up to a private apartment. Now stand at the top of the stairs and begin to take in the fully amazing nature of this curator's wonderland of natural life. Wow!
