6 DEY­ROLLE TAXI­DERMY

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

A short walk from the gallery at num­ber 46 Rue du Bac is this taxi­dermy shop, which dates back to 1831 and was almost com­pletely de­stroyed by fire in 2008. For­tu­nately, it has been re­built and once again sports a frozen menagerie of beasts, all of which are for sale and make for a cu­ri­ous en­counter with which to end your tour. Griz­zly bears stand on hind legs, claws ready to strike, lions pause mid-prowl and tigers re­cline while giv­ing you an icy stare. For $12,000 to $25,000 you can pick up a Nile crocodile or baby ele­phant, but if this could pose prob­lems on your flight back, then an irides­cent blue but­ter­fly or ex­otic par­rot will not only be more man­age­able but cheaper too.Visit dey­rolle.com
