    Default Stuffed animals, and skins

    Hello all,

    I have a friend of mine that wants to buy some various stuffed animals.
    These would be the full 4 legged things, and also just the heads which wall mount.
    He is also looking for varius animal skins.

    He was going to buy from Europe, but I have suggested he give me a little time to ask my South African friends.
    Perhaps a few of the forum members may know of places to buy.

    I know there could be a whole storm brewing, for export and import, but he plans to cross that bridge when he finds a supplier.

    Maybe get in touch with a Taxidermist
    Anything specifically he is looking for? and how soon does he want it?
    Nico van Rooyen taxidermy is a good placve to start, otherwise try and see if he can't buy privately, or place orders and when we go hunting we can look for something specifically...

    Hi Christo,

    He is looking at all largish animals, the biggest he is looking for is a Rhino.
    Bigger than that, is just no space for.
    This kind of rules out the elephant and giraff, unless young, which is probably as rare as hens teeth.

    So that leaves us with the wilderbeeste, lions, tigers, various bok, zepra, leopard, hyena, various apes, ostritch, meerkats,

    If you can give me any pointers where to obtain, I would be happy.

    This is where some serious money is.

    Ok so the rhino will have to have a fake horn.... this makes me think, maybe get the taxidermist to modify the male organ to be EXTREMELY Small

    My sis's laaitie works for a taxidermist up in Louis Trichardt, I can have a chat with him and see if they can help you out.
    I like anything with 4 or more wheels...

    Contact Derek Robinson Taxidermist, Thabazimbi. Google is your friend. I have stayed on his game farm often and he has big animals all ready for sale. He does his own crating and exports often.
