Skulls Unlimited is currently buying bulk domestic specimens, as well as more uncommon and exotic species. Let us know if you have anything we are looking for, or if you have something you think we may be interested in by filling out the form here!
We are specifically in need of the following animals in bulk:
- Striped skunk
- Domestic rabbit
- Tree squirrel
- Pond turtle
We also buy the skulls of more uncommon species like:
- Gray Wolf
- Mountain beaver
- Wild boar
- Kit fox
It is vital that you do not ship anything without contacting us first, as you risk not being paid for unapproved shipments. Purchasing will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis with the highest quantities offered being priority.
Skulls Unlimited only purchases mature animals with good teeth and skulls that are free of damage.
We prefer to receive the heads skinned and with a few vertebrae attached. This lessens the chance of damaging the skull when it is removed from the body. Skulls should be allowed to drain of excess moisture and should be frozen for at least 48 hours prior to shipping. It is recommended to place the specimens in newspaper or paper towels before freezing to help absorb any additional moisture. For small animals, please send the entire animal. (i.e. shrews, moles, and weasels.)
A packing list and signed invoice of the enclosed items must accompany your shipment. This will ensure no items are overlooked and discarded. Please place your packing list in a sealed Ziploc bag taped to the outside of your box. IMPORTANT: All shipments must include a printed copy of your current hunting and trapping license.
Federal law requires that all packages must be clearly marked as containing wildlife or wildlife parts. This can easily be done by alerting the shipping company and writing “Taxidermy items" or "Wildlife parts" legibly on the outside of your shipping container.
Use a sturdy box and, if possible, fill it with cedar wood chips to absorb excess moisture and control odor. Parcels should weigh no more than 70 lbs. Heavier parcels may tear open during shipping resulting in lost or damaged specimens.
Once your transaction has been approved by us and you are ready to ship your products, please contact Skulls Unlimited with the size of your parcel(s). After confirmation of package size and quantities, we will send you a prepaid Fed-Ex shipping label and arrange a pickup, or if you prefer, provide you with the address of the nearest drop-off location.
Packages must ship on a Monday to avoid shipping delays. Any delays may result in specimens spoiling and being thrown away by the shipping company. Skulls Unlimited will not pay for or be held responsible for spoiled or damaged goods. If you experience trouble with a Fed-Ex representative accepting parcels containing wildlife parts, please refer them to the 2014 Users Guide Online Version, page 140, (c) "Animal heads and other parts for taxidermy may be accepted but must be properly packaged."
If you have additional questions about purchasing or shipping in bulk, please give us a call directly at (405) 794-9300. We can be reached Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Central standard time.
