Beatles are the only way to go to clean a skull. Looks great by the way.

Ummmm
Where do you get these beetles or are they just something a taxi has?

Got a bear skull in the freezer. :dunno:

You can buy them on eBay.  They are called dermistead beetles.

Not something thatís easy to have, needs high temps, plus kept away from Taxidermy mounts.

If I had a shop I would have them.
