Real Sea Lion Skulls
100% Legal & Ethically Obtained Sea Lion Skulls - Skulls Unlimited recently had the opportunity to purchase an antique research collection of California sea lions. This collection dates back to the 1950’s and 60’s and was the work of the late Dr. Arthur Kelly. The US Marine Mammal Protection Act (http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/laws/mmpa/) generally prohibits the sale of marine mammals, however it does allows for the sale of specimens collected prior to 1972 (http://www.nmfs.noaa.gov/pr/pdfs/permits/instructions_appendix1.pdf). Each specimen is provided with a bill of sale and a letter of authorization from NOAA.
This is a rare opportunity for anyone wishing to add this species to their classroom or collection!
