RACCOON SKULL - PROCYON LOTOR
The common raccoon, Procyon lotor, is a species of small-but-bulky mammal in the Procyonidae family native to North America. It’s very recognizable by the black “mask” around its eyes, and its fuzzy, black-banded tail. It is a highly-adaptive animal and can be found in many different habitats (as long as water is readily available), including urban areas. It’s also an opportunistic omnivore, its diet including everything from fruits and nuts, to smaller animals, to garbage and carrion. Raccoons are often considered pests, and are routinely trapped and poisoned. Raccoon skulls are relatively thick and heavy for their size. Their muzzles are of average length; shorter than those of canids, but longer than felid ones.
Our raccoon skulls are obtained as by-products from aforementioned routine pest control. They would have been discarded otherwise; we fumigate and treat them in our very own fabrication studio. These handsome skulls are not only perfect for study, but also make very intriguing, rustic decor. Add one to your collection today!
This Specimen comes with their jaw glued shut with hot glue. The skulls are lightly glue and may be easily unglued. However, you may also add to the order notes that you would like your skull to be shipped out unglued.
