I just received a shipment of trophies from my 2014 safari. I had most of the taxidermy done in Africa, and this gives rise to a question (a few actually, but let's start with this one) On the lioness, I asked for a rug, with the mouth open. Well, the taxidermist cut the head off, and then re-attached the head to the rest of the skin with staples. Since this is a lioness, there is no mane to cover the line. As well, the staples used to attach the skin to the head didn't all hit the wood base under the head, and some stick up and out, so if you try to touch the "neck" you are liable to shed some blood. Does anyone know if this is standard procedure? I had a male made into a rug some years ago, and they kept the skin in one piece. I won't get into the fact that most of the claws are missing or broken (and they were on the skin when I left it), or that the skin is poorly glued to a very thin piece of felt (black, but almost see-through) with no padding . . . A picture of the problem: Thanks!
