    I know you can't se it well, but my jackal skull is included in the base. At this time, it appears I'm allergic :cry: to the hide so not sure I'll mount it

    Very cool! I like your sculptures too, you could definitely sell a couple if you ever turn it into a full fledged side business (y)

    Yeah that was the plan- they are all half size that will hang on the wall with the kudu being a modified wall pedestal so it can still go on the wall down the road if needed also.
