How We Source

How do you you source your insects?

The term “ethical” can be subjective, however generally in the case of taxidermy it refers to specimens which are not caught and killed for the sole purpose of taxidermy.


Most of my specimens are sourced from breeders from around the world as well as conservation projects, meaning there is little to no environmental impact.

In some cases, they are also sourced from my own personal collection/rearing and from within the pet trade (pets that have died). I do not personally kill my specimens and any from my own collection have died of natural deaths.

None are sourced for the sole purpose of my products or taxidermy.

How do you source your skulls/bones?

All are sourced cruelty free, ethically and are from natural deaths or in some instances road kill.

 

As well as going on daily nature walks with the dog where on occasion I may find deceased animals and their remains.

 

We source from other like minded vulture people who have the same values as us. Some also come from farm animals.

 

None are sourced for the sole purpose of my products or taxidermy.

How do you source your wet specimen animals?

The reptiles I use for my wet specimens are sourced from within the pet trade. These have all died of natural causes and are never killed.

 

Other animals I use such as mammals are sourced from places like road kill or unfortunate deaths during breeding/pregnancy, as well as old age pets and farms.

 

As with our other specimens, they are never killed for purpose of my work or taxidermy.
