    That is an awesome job on that bat! Amazing! Where did you get it? Also, it looks huge, I'm trying to compare it to the spray bottle behind it lol

    Oh my god Snow that is an amazing job! :eek: Hammerheads aren't to everyone's taste, but personally I think they have their own special beauty. The females are actually a lot more normal looking - the males have that huge snout so they can use it like a trumpet to attract mates.

    I was just thinking recently how I've hardly ever seen any mounted fruit bats; most bats I see are microbats either dried or preserved in lucite. And the few fruities I have seen are hideous eBay abominations. I'd dearly love to have a few mounted flying foxes, but I'm almost certain they'd require permits

    Question for snowy-
    I'm wrapping a bobcat and I was wondering if I should use the real scapula or just the leg bones?
