    My Zebra rug came from the Taxidermist with tabs and D-ring already attached making it easy to hang on the wall.

    I just used push pins to hang my blue wildebeest on mine.. simple & quick.. no big holes in the end either.

    We had to hang our beautiful Zebra in the stairwell and some back skins in the upstairs hall as we're out of room! We used pushpins, tacks and spiked staples. The tacks and staples literally disappear in the fur or felt backing.

    I had a leather backing and D rings put on mine. Right now it lay across my dining table. I don't have wall space enough to hang it without rearranging some trophies. If I do hang it I'll use Monkey Hooks. They are a curved piece of wire and you just stick them through the drywall. They can hold up to 75 lbs. Available at Walmart and craft stores.
