    I am gatheriing up supplies for a taxidermy project I am hoping to get started, and one of these would be eyes. It is for a wild boar. Is there an artificial eye that has the 'glow' that an animal's eyes normally have? I've looked for ages, but it's very hard to find it on the Net because my search engine is junk. So I might as well ask directly. Thanks!

    Your question is hard to understand. I mean all the artificial eyes are made to look like real eyes. Can you explain more what you are looking for.

    Look up Uncle Harley on this site. He makes and sells the reflective eyes I think you are looking for. He is offering them in the "for sale " section.

    Your looking for eyes with a "tapetum", the reflective coating that live animals have on their eyes to reflect the unnecessary light? Ive never seen eyes like that for sale myself. That look would only be natural if their was light shining in the animals eyes. Something different I guess.
