Of skulls i’ve found and cleaned personally i have around 16. I generally only tend to keep one of what i find. I clean and sell any additional skulls of that same animal.
Currently my personal is small, since i don’t really buy skulls - all of these were found and cleaned by me, mostly roadkill. The collection includes:
I also have : Wild Pig (culled in texas). My boyfriend has : Human, bobcat & badger - all were given to my boyfriend long before i met him.
My Favorite ? The coyote - we found it on my last birthday. It was the first coyote i’ve ever found and it was a wonderful birthday present. Unclear on cause of death; it was near a road but all the bones are intact : it does have a strange texture and color to the bones, so maybe it died of natural causes? It’s name is Birthday and i spend a lot of time telling her how pretty she is… (that looks really creepy written down)
I assume you are talking about the deer/coyote bone collections that were recently posted on etsy? Some are roadkill and some were likely hunted for food last season or didn’t survive the winter.
If you have specific questions about Etsy items please contact me directly on etsy - tumblr messaging is not terribly reliable
