BEETLE CLEANING TO A HIGHER LEVEL

If you look carefully at the picture of these two bear skulls you’ll see that one was cooked and the other was cleaned with beetles and degreased with solvents.

Good and Bad Processing

Good and Bad Processing

The one on the left is a natural bone white with smooth bone quality, intact and firm nasal bones, tight joints and no separation. The one on the right has missing nasal bone, loose, cracked teeth and open suture joints that show shrinkage  and separation of the bone. The bone is pasty white and flakes, and in some areas is pitted.

Open Suture Joint

Open Suture Joint

This kind of joint opens up when heat has been used to clean  the head or heat was used to to degrease. Sometimes it opens up, and all the other joints separate because of rot or maceration. If you want a rotted skull – do it yourself, you don’t need professional services. One local taxidermist will throw it in his pond for you (and you still have to pay him).

If you provide us with fresh skulls, not salted, cooked or rotted, we can guarantee a firm bone quality without shrinkage (except microscopic wet-bone-drying) and quality skull cleaning, truly professional and detail- oriented.  Like many small businesses our reputation sells our product. If the skull has been cooked, salted or is rotten, we can still bring it up to a high quality because our methods are passive, not harsh.

Your choice is shown between these two pictures.  One might look good if you don’t know quality, the other will showcase your skull in all it’s God given beauty.
