In the interest of experimenting with found-art reliquary construction, I thought I'd buy some mouse skulls. To my shock, I couldn't find any for sale, and eventually bought a muskrat skull on ebay*.
I eventually discovered Skulls Unlimited
from a previous askMe
, but they charge fifteen bucks plus shipping.
I guess I assumed that, since they are considered vermin and are regularly exterminated, someone
in this crazy world would be selling mouse skull five for a dollar. Preferably someone like Sarina Brewer
, who uses and sells donated carcasses and roadkill only.
So, in short, anyone have any suggestions for cheap, ethical memento mori?
*Upon payment, I noticed that they also sold skins and traps, making me feel a bit as though I'd commissioned this animal's death. Boo.
