Wanted / Wanted: small mount-ready rabbit pelts.

I'm looking for mountable rabbit pelts, preferably small ones with round faces. Color doesn't matter. If you have any young ones or babies that's a plus.
Skulls and Skeletons / Re: My beetles might have mites- Please help!
« Last post by SemiRetired on Yesterday at 08:56:01 PM »
I don'thave any input on whether your colony has mites or not but thought I'd comment on the canned cat food..there is no reason not to feed it. I have spent a long time studing mites and how they infest dermestid colonies. First off mites can only travel short distances on their own,

They are mported into colonies by contaminated feed/skulls or wild dermestids. Dog and cat food processing plants have a huge problems with mites and sometimes wild dermestids.

. I choose to feed this item but it should be treated as any food..heat it or freeze it. Once mites arrive they will live along side dermestids, they eat the same foods and reproduce and soon take over that is when you see the dust like material on the larvae..which is hundreds of dispersal  mites.  Adult mites may even climb up the containment walls and venture short distances. In many cases they hitch a ride on your clothing or even your skin. From there they can be spread into stored pet food or any other high protein food items you may have.

As for hot dogs, these are a very high salt food..if you do feed them boil them to reduce the salt content. FYI to much salt can affect growth and reproduction rates in dermestids. I hope this information helps others.

The Taxidermy Industry / Shipping, Head Scratching
« Last post by DL on Yesterday at 08:37:06 PM »
I received a package of some parts for my Suzuki Samurai today from Mumbai, India. It took 9 Days!! I have had in three separate occasions packages of frozen animals take that long and were not even on the east coast. One package took 4 days bopping around in Minnesota before it left the state. I guess I need to out source package delivery to India.

The Taxidermy Industry / Re: Making the change to $650.
« Last post by capnmike on Yesterday at 08:34:07 PM »
I know this is a little off topic but I met another taxidermist in my area the other day and discussed methods a little. Apparently he dry preserves with no adhesive and was unaware there is any adhesive to use with dry preservative. I just went along with it and said I didn't like all the pins to try to fight drumming or the shrinkage that goes along with that method but it is still possible to make a nice mount with it. He says "what is drumming".....I kinda changed the subject. He gets $400 for a shoulder mount.
