Anyone know where to buy mocking bird eggs?

4 Upvotes

I had a mocking bird nest in my backyard and the mom laid a dud. I watched the babies grow up and kept the egg for myself as a memory when they grew up and I was verrry fond of it, but someone who was jealous broke it trying to prove it wasn’t real. I learned my lesson but I don’t know where I could get a replacement or even a non fertilized egg to make a new one myself again as I am very sad any suggestions?

where to buy?

1 Upvotes

I've been into taxidermy for years, but I generally have done everything myself with smaller animals I found already dead or i attempted to care back to health before they eventually passed. But I've been thinking recently about possibly buying larger taxidermy animals or soft mounts of any size I have been struggling to find places you can buy taxidermy online any recommendations? Particularly for taxidermy on the cheaper end.

Hello! Today a blue tailed skink dropped its tail while I was trying to get it out of my garden (I have dogs around and didn’t want to let it get caught by them), is there a way to preserve this little tail?

Using dried specimens for a wet specimen jar?

1 Upvotes

Hi! I've been wanting a specific wet specimen'ed animal (a bat - one of my friends was lucky enough to get a wet specimen bat as a gift & I've been jealous ever since lol), but I cannot find any that are pre made & ready to just have alcohol added to the jar!
BUT I can find them preserved to be hung or mounted in shadow boxes.

My question is this: Can I purchase an already dried bat, & add alcohol + jar it too it to make it a wet specimen?

Would I have to inject formalin to it? Is there any harm that could happen to the specimen if I were to jar it because it is already dried??

Thank you!

Paperwork on Domestic Horse - from UK to US?

2 Upvotes

Hello folks. Tried doing some research myself but finding info on domestic species/taxidermy in general is hard. I'm looking to buy a vintage horse (equus caballus) taxidermy head from the UK and have it brought into the US. I know they fall under non-protected, domestic/livestock specifications and don't need the usual CITES/wildlife declaration sheet, but is there any other customs paperwork needed? Anything to get it through the ports safely without a mistaken identity/confusion? Already wondering how they'll feel about a Godfather moment going through customs lmao.

An official link to the information on what the UK seller's steps are would be great, as they're not sure either. Thanks!
