Thanks Jerome.
Here's an example of a Euro mount for you. (Was a young Giraffe though). We actually do quite a lot of Euro mounts with Giraffe skulls for our clients. I would say 70% of those who have the cape made into a shoulder mount get a Euro Mount done with their skull as well.

Welcome to AH @Silke Bean.

Can you share any other examples of giraffe items your taxidermy shop makes?

Anyone wall mount one? Id really like to do this over a set of stairs and have it come more eye level on second level.

This is how I had my giraffe mounted.

Thanks for this! I am thinking very seriously of braving the wrath of my wife and going for a giraffe in June.

Go for it, they are fun to hunt. And seeing one fall is something else.

I would definitely try for one if you can, I didn't get to see mine fall. Going have to fix that in future.
