Rare Walrus Sub-fossil frontlit with Authentic Tusks
The walrus is native to the northern Atlantic, northern Pacific and Arctic oceans. Walrus have a thick layer of fat that helps to insulate them from the frigid waters they inhabit. This large pinneped is known for its characteristic canine tusks, which are found in both males and females. Walrus feed on a variety of mollusks and crustaceans. Like other seals, the walrus is designed for aquatic locomotion, but is capable of hauling its massive frame ashore to bask, mate, and give birth. This rare find at Skulls Unlimited is a walrus head mount with real raw tusks depicting authentic scrimshaw mounted to a beautiful plaque. Because this piece pre-dates the marine mammal act of 1972, this walrus can legally be sold. This is a great authentic piece and would be the perfect addition to any collection.
The domestic dog is believed to be a direct descendant from modern wolves. Dogs have been bred as pets for thousands of years with the earliest known domestication taking place as long as 12,000 years ago. The Domestic or House Cat is the most common member of the Felidae family World Wide. There are an estimated 100 million cats in the western world. There are over 100 breeds currently recognized, and that number grows yearly. All of the current breeds of Domestic Cat are decedents of the Wild cat, originally native to Asia and Africa. Like many mammals, the teeth of an animal are replaced at a certain age in order to accommodate larger meals. These skulls show various stages of teeth and bone quality demonstrated at a young age. This set of skulls would make an excellent teaching tool or a great addition to any vet office. Please see photos for examples and feel free to call with any questions.
