Sabertooth Tiger "Sabra"
3rd place in the World Taxidermy Championships - Collective Artists Division

Schneider Creations partnered with Fred Fehrmann from National Fiber Technology participating in the 2007 World Taxidermy Championships held in Reno, Nevada, in April 2007. Our team took Third Place in the world in the Collective Artists Division for our reproduction of a Sabertooth Tiger!

Baby Sabertooth Tiger "Roary"

John Schneider sculpted and cast the hard and soft tissues (teeth, claws, tongue, nose, ears) then created the Sabertooth using faux fur provided by National Fiber Technology. This was our first ever entry into the world of taxidermy, and we are pleased to have placed Third in the world for our division. We have affectionately named our Sabertooth "Sabra" and we have the bust of a baby Sabertooth that we have named "Roary."


Our very first trade show exhibit was at the Sales, Networking, and Leadership Conference and Expo presented by the Grand Rapids Area Chamber of Commerce on May 16, 2006 - DeVos Place, Grand Rapids, Michigan!
We displayed our completed 12-ft. tall Asian hot tub surround  and some of our one-of-a-kind art pieces!  We had a fun time and met some great people.  Jennifer Ederer and Kelly Barz from Modern Day Floral had a booth at the expo and they were so excited about our hot tub surround that they made two exotic floral arrangements for us as seen in the photos.  Their booth was built around a beautiful fountain with surrounding columns and flowers of all kinds. They recently opened a storefront in downtown Grand Rapids at 125 Ottawa Ave, Suite 170 (next to Preusser Jewelers), so be sure to visit them if you like creative floral arrangements!  Their website is
