dead things

Questions   Submissions   I appreciate the beauty in dead things.

Note: if you are not comfortable, or you disagree with any of these things, don't look or comment. This blog isn't about fashion, or looking "cool", it's about appreciating the animal, even though it is now deceased - which different people do through different ways, be it skulls, pelts, soft mounts or headdresses.

Disclaimer: unless tagged "mine" none of the animals posted are mine.

Precious baby skunkie

My mother found him attacked by our dog in the yard. The other babies were hiding in the yard next door and were released in a safer area.

I super glued his wounds closed so the blood stopped leaking out. Then injected him in several places with alcohol so that his insides don’t rot. Once I finished, I submerged him in isopropyl alcohol. He is so precious… Definitely my favorite specimen as of now

His jar is too large, I didn’t realize how tiny he would be when I picked it out, so eventually I’ll replace it with a smaller one.

I learned something today: Roe deer are really tiny.

I found these deformed roe deer antlers for sale and I couldn’t pass them up. Roe deer bones are incredibly hard to find for sale in the US, and I’m so happy that I found these vintage cuties. I spent most of my food budget on it, but a week and a half of ramen is totally worth the amazing.
