Due to a few new mustelids I had to move my collection to a bigger shelf.
Four mounted mustelids are still missing here but they just didn't fit.

There are two mounted ones a stoat and a least weasel. The glass cabinet holds my mink (male and female), ferret, polecat, stoat, least weasel (2x), pygmy weasel and north american river otter. In the background you can see beech marten (2x), honey badger, least weasel skeleton, wolverine (on a beech marten skeleton) and a wet specimen least weasel. The front row shows three different european badgers (pathological, old grandpa and one I collected myself), an american badger and a male fisher.

Hope to add more in the future. If you've got some for sale... note me :)

I collect for like 7 years now and was totally crazy last year.
Jumped from around 100 skulls to almost 200. Need to pull the brake now.

dang, that's a lot. I guess there has to be a stopping point, or else your whole house will be covered in skulls, furs, and wet specimens..

Indeed, that will happen. I am fine with it though.
As long as everything is proper cleaned and sanitary :)

Plus I don't collect fur anymore.

This reminds me of my dads office, lots of fake sculls and trinkets. I love this work you do, keep it up. :)

Hiya! Nice collection. It's hard to find the space though, isn't it?

What are you still on the lookout for? I do have some bits for sale. :) (Smile)

Almost all mustelid species I don't have yet and skulls in general.

Ah, ok.
For sale, I currently have a mink skull in perfect condition, a squirrel skull with no lower jaw, a vintage taxidermy least weasel, and a tiny stoat in ermine that I mounted myself (so won't be as good in quality as Adrian Johnstone's!!!) 
If you go to my DA page you can see the tiny ermine (wall mounted) (left) and the weasel on the base I made for it (right).
Let me know if you're interested in any of these and I can give you a price and some pictures.

Hi there Scoots,
I do, but I'm in the UK and not sure of all the laws around shipping to you in the US ? ! Especially skulls and taxidermy. The rules are quite confusing. I would suggest that you check etsy though, it's a great site for finding odd stuff and they're sure to have great stuff from the good ole US of A. :) (Smile)

Man, I wish my collection was as big as yours. All I have is a puny rat skull. XD
Looks wonderful though.

I collect for 7 years now and got totally crazy last year. Upped from 100 skulls to almost 200.
So, patience is the key :)
