I listed a ton of antlers in the shop earlier today! Some have already sold but there’s still some beauties in need of new homes. Stop by and check them out!

Anonymous asked: Do you have any bobcat skulls or other carnivore skulls (coyote, fox, the works) you plan to list alone, without any paint or design on them? :D

I just listed a couple of craft grade bobcats earlier but they’ve both sold already. I’ve got a couple craft grade badgers (tops only with most teeth gone) and maybe another bobcat I’ll be listing soon though! :)

Skulls usually sell pretty quickly but I’ve always got my eye out for dead treasures so you never know what’s gonna end up in my shop!

I’ve had quite a few folks asking so here are some more little jars of animal teeth! 70-90 teeth in each one. Get them here!

Anonymous asked: Hi! I'm not one of the anons that you've been corresponding with (though I'm learning lots from your replies - thanks!) but I just wanted to say that you're pretty awesome. I really appreciate how open and helpful and patient you are with everyone on here. Keep being you and have a good week!

Hey there! Aw thank you! I really appreciate that. We all have to start somewhere and I’ve learned enough through trial and error in my nearly twenty years of doing this that I’m more than happy to share what I know.

I’m still working on that book/pamphlet thing I mentioned a while back too! It’ll be a pretty comprehensive guide to bone cleaning, collecting, and all that fun stuff with some sweet illustrations to go along with the info. Sorta like all these asks smashed together and expanded upon so hopefully folks will get some good out of it too. :)

Thank you again for the kind words and you keep being awesome, Anon!

Anonymous asked: Carnivore!! Sorry about that

Hey no worries! I’ll go ahead and list them in the shop so you can grab them whenever you like.

I’ve still got that wolf molar for $15 too if it’s of any interest to you. Just let me know!

Anonymous asked: I didn't see them listed in your shop? Have they been sold or are they not listed yet? If they're not up yet, how much is shipping?

Hey, are you Carnivore Tooth Anon? Or Misc Tooth Anon? Sorry, I’ve got a few different requests going on right now.

One lot of 30 random teeth that I listed in the shop the other day sold already but the lot of carnivore teeth I posted about last night is still available. $11 + 5.95 shipping via USPS Priority Mail. I haven’t posted them in the shop yet but I can if you’d like.

OR if you are Misc. Tooth Anon I can put together another lot for you. Just let me know! :)

Some cool goodies I picked up at an antique store in Franklin, KY recently. An old school pencil box for a Mr. George M. Badger, Age 12, from 1912, a neat wood box with brass inlays, old jewelry case, and the coolest things: conjoined Moqui Marbles and a Sea Heart seed pod.

The very bust-esque moqui marbles and the sea heart were in a giant box of rocks and sea shells and costume jewelry. Most of it was pea gravel or random beat up cowrie shells but I couldn’t pass up on those two gems for a quarter a piece. I didn’t even know what the sea heart was at the time but finally figured out after some googling.

Moqui Marbles are iron oxide concretions found in Navajo Sandstone in Utah. Hopi Native American legends said that they were left behind by deceased relatives to let their descents know they were happy in the afterlife. “Moqui” is Hopi for “the dead.”

Sea Hearts (Entada gigas) come from a plant also known as the monkey-ladder which is a member of the pea family. It’s native to Central America, South America, and Africa and has seed pods which can grow to be over six feet long! Each pod has ten to fifteen of these flat, heart-shaped seeds in them.

So yeah, just some random cool curiosities.

Check out this cute little weirdo that was in that big lot of antlers I posted about yesterday.
