Australia
Starting up with taxidermy and pelts.
Interests
Not much to say, other than all my tanning and skinning supplies arrived this week so I can finally get started.
We're still working on building a work space for me, and I hope that won't take too long but we'll see. I'll be putting up pictures of all my work, regardless of how bad, so I can look back and reflect on my terrible beginnings. I will also post any animal pelts, mounts etc that I purchase.

My main animals will be rats and mice from my cats, foxes and rabbits from roadkill and local pest control, and kangaroos from roadkill (once I get the right license).

I am Australian, which is super depressing because it's hard and expensive to get ranch foxes over here, even though I am desperate for some of the colour morphs only found in ranch foxes like fire and ice and platinum gold - love the pale blonder foxes. But on the up, I am learning about Australian laws regarding vulture culture and taxidermy so I might be able to help some others out.

My end goal is to make a soft mount fox and articulate a fox skeleton (at this stage). Maybe I'll even be good at this and go further.

My taxidermy/vulture culture blog is: kitsvultureculture.tumblr.com/

WIP another big boy fox
This fox was a nightmare from start to finish, but he's so big and amazingly fluffy - couldn't save the face due to the car accident, but I did get the ears. You won't believe how fluffy he is!

WIP 3 foxes
Just a different photo of those 3 foxes I'm working on. Hopefully will get them tanned by the end of next month.

Smokey the Rabbit
Another rabbit from the same local shop. Will be used in my rabbit-fox quilt.
Called this one smokey. Actually looks way blacker in real life but has some brown undertones.

Polka Dot the Rabbit
Another rabbit from the same local shop. These are all going to be part of a fox-rabbit quilt. This one is called polka Dot.

WIP 2 Red Fox Boy Wallhangers
These were my first 2 roadkill finds (on the same night), skinned them up made a few mistakes, one on the left is missing half his face, and one on the right has slipped a little already (I hope I can save him), have right boys bones in a bucket, and lefty's head.
They're not tannned yet, just drying.
