    a friend of mine asked me some time ago to clean this head for him.
    finished it today but decided to take a pic first and share with you before it ships out.
    first time ever I saw one of these IRL.

    Really very unique. Trying to obtain a male cassowary myself. They disappear too fast. How did you clean this? Completely by hand?

    hey Terry

    nah just normal maceration. contrary to cassuaries, the casque on this one is covered with thick colored skin, not ceratine so it can't be preserved. the reassembly is about the same difficulty as a turkey so not that bad.
