    Hey yall!
    Adult life beckons- I need some money for car maintenance, so I'm searching for a new home for this Opossum. Pelt from Moscow hide & fur, soft mounted by Urban Nature Taxidermy. Super soft fur, belly weighted with beads, and overall in excellent condition. Smoke free home. Asking $650 + shipping. Please email [email protected] if you're interested, and for pics. I can't upload any right now, but will later.

    Are you out of your mind? $650 for a Possum, come on man...
    What the heck kind of possum do you have?
    Even a pretty New Zealand Possum is not worth that much.
     

  3. You'll have better luck on eBay or Etsy there's more suckers there . It only costs like 25 cents for a listing .Gonna be a hard sell to taxidermists and majority of taxidermist have no interest in soft "mounts "

    I mounted one hanging upside down with a pony bottle of miller in his paws.

    I also had a pet possum one time, his name was george. (for real)

    Hah, I paid around $800 for him. Mostly for the skill and quality of the taxidermist I chose. I may have to give Ebay or Etsy a shot instead though.
