Is it just me or is that hard to stare at?

Just curious, what do they do with the pelts?

I think most get sold for wall hangers. I sell quite a few for taxidermy. I have been told of a number in museums. University of North Carolina just purchased two for their collection. I was told one ended up in a museum of natural history in Belgium.
If you have seen Karen's vest you can see they have potential for garments but the scant number of them being sold are a problem for that. Wish there was more of a market for them in the garment industry.
