    also had horned owl talons but they and my taxidermy "jackalope" were stolen as well

    Other goodies that I have
    dried: scorpion (forest)
    imbedded: beetle
    wet: scorpion (common texas)
    several dried (salted) seahorses

    lol.. I think that's everything unless you want to include the Haitian "Vodou Bokor hat" (complete with dried chicken foot and beads) that resides in a box in my closet.

    I'm planning on adding a few dog skulls as well as a few more articulated skeletons later on this spring/summer.. one of the articulated will be a yearling emu (should be about 4 feet tall in "relaxed stance")
    I still have my wish list too.. so I may be adding in skulls to my collection at any time

  3. Lol! Sounds awesome! So sorry some got stolen!

    I also have a mummified pekin duck leg and a Malaysian flying bat skull.
    I went to a museum in Oklahoma and got to go in the back and stuff and the owner gave us a tour himself and he said half the skulls I have are illegal!

    My husband is currently in Afghanistan. Since he can't be here for my birthday he's getting me a new skull (lol.. not the gift MOST girls would want.. but then again I'm not like MOST girls)!
    He bought it somewhere online for me and is having it shipped. It's one I have been wanting to add to my collection.. a Black Backed Jackal skull [​IMG]
