A bite of 1,100 Psi by WendigoIllustration A bite of 1,100 Psi by WendigoIllustration
The skull of my male, Brown Hyena! This specimen is 100-120 years old.

Funny Story about this one: A Hyena skull has been my holy grail ever since I started collecting taxidermy. One time I saw someone, who was trying to get rid of an old "wolfrug". It looked so shitty that no one would have bought that Thing, but after taking a closer look I was able to identify the so called "wolf" as a Brown Hyena! I also was about 90% sure that in the mounted head was the original skull. After talking to the seller, who was very unaware of what he had there, I snagged my holy grail up for more than just a steal! I cut the damaged and ugly head off and in hours and hours of work I cleaned the skull! The Canine teeths have some damage, but other than that are all teeth present and the Skull is undamaged, having a nice Patina! The dusty and Dirty rest of the rug is still in my Basement, I´ll carefully wash it by Hand in the summer and fix the leather with some Isopropanyl to strengthen it. I also kept parts of the face fur and the eyes that were used on this Baby!
