    Ok, it's not exactly finished yet. It still needs to be sealed. This a Mandrill baboon skull. That nasty looking baboon with the red and blue face and the bright red butt. Big sucker and teeth to match the temperament.

    This one wasn't bad but it did go right into the acetone. WW do you have a mandrill too? Or just the garden variety baboon? I might be able to get another one of these if you want one.

    That things front teeth almost look like a finger or some kind of arm like appendages. That is a great skull.

    This was a mandrill from a traveling circus/petting zoo that was euthanized. New England weather does not agree with these animals it seems. Pity the owners didn't keep it warm enough or let too many people get close to it so that it caught something from someone.
