    I'm really enjoying Warren's instagrams of skulls today.
    Makes me feel a little less odd for my own photos of my new raccoon skull, my doe skull or my fake human skully dude halloween prop. I even have a partial fox skull in my bedroom at mom's.

    Other People think strange things are Neat, Too!
    Woo :D

    How many others here have a skull or two or so about their house?

    I don't but I honestly wish I did. My main problem is the acquisition of said skull; if I'm going to purchase one, I want to know how the skull was originally acquired.

    As for cleaning a skull found from a carcass, I'm pretty sure my wife would leave me if I tried.

    @Ren -it's an iOS photo-sharing app.

    I'm sure it'll eventually have a droid option. Then you, too, can see every cat person in the country's cat pics.

    @Ren proper places are licensed to sell bones, so they'll be humanely acquired. If you want more story than that, uhm, I suppose you could ask? I like Evolution for that, although obtaining a human skull is impossible through them, unless you're in the medical profession. Private collectors go through shady avenues and spend tons of money.

    I also have a groupon to Evolution that I need to use up soon to obtain more taxidermy for my home. I currently only have prop skulls for Sketchy's and that needs to change now! D:

    There are also places that do replicas of bones, too. So you don't have to worry about dead critter germs ( bone clones is one such place)

    Thanks, for the info; concerns about how they were acquired keep me away from purchasing a lot of things I'd like to have for some projects. I'd like more story if I can get it.

    I have always wanted a Smilodon skull, ever since I saw a picture of one in Harlan Ellison's office. Some day.

    Smilodon skull replicas are awesome. But fricken expensive. Save your pennies, You can Do It! :D

    My wife says that when she sells $300 worth of her art, she'll buy me one.

    She's a nice lady.
