Believe it or not-there are a few of these out there.

The paper should be changed, probably annually.  It should generally be trated as a pelt or hide with hair on, and protected from the same pests that fur attracts.  In addition to Ms Cantor’s suggestion, you might also contact the Natural History folks at the U of  N Museum for advice on care.  The National Museum of Health and Medicine http://www.medicalmuseum.mil might be of assistance, as they are the repository of an amazing array of anatomical specimens.
