Divya Anantharaman is a total fox. Fitting, because she's been working with foxes (well, the one fox ended up being a coyote), deer, bears, etc., on a regular basis for the last seven years. Divya's a taxidermist in New York City. We admit that our bias has gotten the best of us, and it was a bit of a shock that someone of Divya's appearance/demeanor would choose a line of work most often associated with...well, not someone who looks like Divya. (She even teaches taxidermy classes on the side!)
Divya, who before this worked in fashion but has no plans to go back, was kind enough to take us into her morbidly beautiful and bizarrely nice-smelling studio to take pictures, talk dead bears, and touch some animals we swore could have come alive at any moment and bitten our wrists.
