I love seeing homes displaying things that are unexpected and surprising.  I think it says a lot about the person living in;  All good things!  A life size Giraffe for instance is playful and beautiful as well as fun! I wouldn't like a taxidermy one in my house though, because I frankly think that's a bit freaky if not sad, particularly in a child's room.  On the other hand I have mentioned before how gracious I find them and how I would love to have a man-made one in my house adorning a corner.  Enjoy!
