Did I mention I have a lot of skulls right now?
Skeleton from a flying lemur.
A man and his skull.
Definitely need one.
Old taxidermy moose with exposed manikin. Mounted in 1910.
Older taxidermy mounts relied on forms made out of the animals skull and a wrapping (newspapers, sawdust, etc). In modern day taxidermy the skin is stretched over a pre-made foam manikin.
I got a bunch of skulls for Christmas, and the coolest one has to be this chihuahua. I decided it’d look pretty under one of my glass domes. I think this is my favourite gift.
Some Domestic dogs have so much inbreeding in them, and this skull has a lot of natural defects due to selective/inbreeding. He’s got lots of weird teeth.
“Tibetan ritual human skull cup. Skull cap is hinged to reveal a bowl underneath for ritual use. Decorated with nickel fixtures and semi-precious stones.
The bowl is the real human skull of a Tibetan monk. These are used by lamas during New Year’s celebrations to drink a concoction made of human blood and wine.” —Tibetan ritual skull cup
Cougar skull in my personal collection.
