RWyvern aka Ants  androgynous female | ace | S.A.| 🐀🐲🐊🐅 Artist weeb, collects dead things, snuggles abyssal nightmare fish.

After seeing @chipperstaxidermy comparison of their largest and smallest skulls (mouse and zebra), I figured I'd show off my largest and smallest. Male giraffe at two and a half feet in length coupled with the skull of an (adult) marbled gecko, barely more than 10 mm in length - smaller than a single giraffe tooth.

Pigeon wing, all nine primary feathers and all twelve secondaries reattached. What can I say, I was bored.

Purchased this trio from @onestopskullshop! Left horn of a male springbok, skull of an African skimmer, and the skull of a female vervet monkey. Beautiful additions!

'Make this bird fly again' was my vow when I received this young adult rainbow lorikeet. With blood from its nostrils I already expected to find some head injuries, but nothing to the extent of what I did find. Fractures lace the skull from back to front. It can be considered both a pathological and a tragic display, especially given the bird's age.

Finally got this little guy (girl?) articulated! It's a rainbow lorikeet, which met its fate in our garden during last year's heatwave. It's the third skeleton I've articulated so far, and easily the most accurate.

A shingleback skull, and two rat skulls (older at the back). The shingleback, courtesy of the Adelaide Zoo, almost entirely fell apart during cleaning and as a result turned into a pretty good puzzle. It is missing a number of teeth and a couple even seem to have decayed.

Articulating a rainbow lorikeet. Still missing a couple of claws and several bones are still degreasing. The dried wing belongs to another lorikeet in the process of preparation.

Articulated noisy miner skeleton, mounted on the weathered skull of a fox.

First raven skull. You can definitely tell how intelligent they are by the size of the cranium alone. Birds full of character, and a lot of fun.
