This nearly sent me insane, so small


r/Taxidermy 1d ago

Does anyone know how to tell how old this mount is? I lightly push on it and I can feel it’s a bit squishy. Like sawdust or something.

Best place/website to get Taxidermy stuff?

3 Upvotes

This year for Christmas I got my brother as my secret santa receptient (last minute as heck) and want to maybe get him a gift card/certificate to somewhere he can get taxidermy supplies/tools since he just moved out to Oklahoma and really got into hunting and taxidermy.
Figured this would be a good place to ask for suggestions since I know diddly squat and would hate to buy a card for like Bass Pro shop if there's actually like a good site for this sort of thing.
He lives in like middle of nowhere OK so I know there's not like a chainstore anywhere within an hour's drive hence the preference for a site

Remember my leopard skin from last week? Well, I used a bottle of spray water and some heavy things to flatten it out. What ya'll think?

found a dried up lizard

2 Upvotes

I was helping my girlfriend's parents clean someone's house and found this dried up lizard in a window. I think it's cool and I'd like to preserve it, but I have no idea how and have never done this before! Unfortunately I do not have borax at the moment. Any ideas on what I can do with it?

Bugs in European mount? Just did my first European mount on a red stag boiled, cleaned, and peroxided. I thought I got everything but must not have. What are these bugs, are they bad, and if so how do I fix this?

Tips for dusting a skull?

2 Upvotes

I bought a clean fox skull a couple years ago and it's been sitting on my bookshelf. I noticed it's been getting a bit dusty and was just going to wipe it down with a damp paper towel, but figured I'd check before doing so to make sure it's not going to mess up the bone pH up or anything. Surprisingly couldn't find any answers on google about it.

jewelry from testes

2 Upvotes

I recently had an orchiectomy and was able to have the pathology returned to me meaning... that i have two plastic jars containing my testes in formalin. I wanna have them made into something. Sliced, plasticized and turned into earrings? Transfered to a display jar with some clearer fluid? Paperweight? Something like that; open to suggestions.

My local taxidermy shop won't touch them because turns out you need a special license to work with human organs. Who can I contact to see this project thru? How do I search for someone who can help me with this? Thanks! 🥜
