I need to mail some old taxidermy to the US from New Zealand.
These are not endangered species, the taxidermy is an old mounted rabbit and maybe a mallard duck or cat if there is room in the box.
Do I have to get permits etc to do this or can I just post them? I am not sure of what is required at the US end!
Thank you for any help,

The cat is illegal (USA prohibits buying or selling domestic cat and domestic dog fur).
The mallard duck is illegal unless you have some permits that say it is a pen (cage) raised bird. It can not be wild.
Best sell those 2 items to someone in NZ / Aus.
The rabbit should be ok with a 3-177 import permit, if the buyer has a license, go to usfws.gov. It'll run you $55 usd.
The license will run the buyer $50 usd and they will have to be open for inspection to the feds.
That's in addition to postage btw.
They didnt say they wanted to sell these items they said they want to ship them here . You might have a problem with that house cat . Rick
