    I have 4500 acres where I live... I trap nutria and gators for the fun of it during season. Just curious if anyone might be interested in some nutria skulls by any chance

    I might be interested in a couple. Especially if they were raw heads. Would make good comparisons to the native beaver.

    They get listed in the for sale section all of the time and the going rate seems to be REALLY low (~$2-$3 a head). I'd be interested in one or two, but I worry that it just isn't worth your time to get them!

    Nutria are a bounty here. I kill 2-3000 a year typically. I will save all heads that aren't damaged and sort them out and see how many and what I have and post pics. Thanks

    .22 ride around and shoot them... The ones I body shoot I'll save all the heads. The head shots I'll just cut the tail off and sell tails to the state . Got 40 this afternoon

  15. Their skulls are freaky. They look nothing like a Beaver. I think I paid $5 each for some raw ones a while back, I bet you could get that price.

    Seller is great to deal with. Skulls would make a great comparison with a beaver.

    Teeth are orange, not black.
