An illogical or irrational fear of stuffed animals. Some sufferers may believe the mounted animals will suddenly come alive and try to attack him/her, others may think they could be impaled on horns or lacerated by claws or teeth should the piece fall on them.
Also known as taxidermy phobia.
I can't walk through the taxidermy exhibit of the Natural History Museum without sweating profusely and getting palpitations because of my taxidermiphobia.
