    I just got a price on shipping a cape buffalo skull from Zimbabwe......$1800. Anybody else got any recent shipping quotes from Zim, and if so, do they sound ridiculous?

    In December I had a Buff, 2 Zebra, a Waterbuck and a Wildebeest shipped for $1,173. Carrier was an outfit call Spherical Freight.

    Just had my paltry order shipped by Spherical from Zim too. Just under a grand for 2 skulls with horns and one flat skin. Box was 30" X36" X 11" deep. Well under 100 pounds. I would look around too, thats a lot for one head.

    Hate to rub in the salt...but I had 6 mounted heads shipped from Sth Africa to Australia air freight in a container measuring 2 metres x 1.5 x 1.o metre for around $2200. I know Sth Af's a bit cheaper but s..t, $1800 sounds exorbitant for a skull mount.
