    wikipedia says a male can go 30-40 lbs.how much did this one weigh?one idea is you can start na auction,but set a reserve price in your head.if the price doesn't get high enough,just cancel the auction,reserve not met.

    If you don't get any good offers you should just mount that baby up. It would make a real nice show piece.

    Yeah bob thats what I was thinking, I like the cat but the like cash more lol. I've gotten some good trade offers but was gonna try to make some money back b/c i traded a future shoulder mount for the cat.

    I'd love the skull+first two vertebrae at least. How about $80 raw + whatever it would take to ship to 02215.

    Why don't you auction it off here? Then you could see what the market could bear. You could put a reserve on it if you were in doubt.

    Maybe who ever buys the cat will be willing to sell it to you.

  11. Should go to the for sale category to auction it off ! Should be more interested bidders there! Just a thought.

    You might be right. His intent was to find out what it was worth but there seems to be big interest in it.
    It kinda turned into a silent auction before he knew it. :D

    I sure hope so. Servals are my favorite cat so it'd be the gem of my collection.

    it's priced out of my range now,but what we were going to do is have it going after an african bird in the classic bobcat/quail pose.i thought having it stretched out like that would show off the spots.
