Jackrabbit head dress by CindarellaPop Jackrabbit head dress by CindarellaPop
This one is a bit of a different 'head-dress.' While I've seen head pieces out there made of foxes and deer and even boars, as well as the more popular wolves, bears and coyotes, natures tinier, more timid denizens never get as much love.

I know deer are majestic and wolves are ferocious carnivores and the common rabbit seems timid and dull in comparison, but there's really something to be said for how fast and how tough these little blighters are.

This jack rabbit is a full pelt with a re-shaped head and ears and fits perfectly over a human head, his hind feet danging from the shoulders as shown. It's held on by a red leather chin strap. It's very light-weight and super soft and would make a great first head-dress for someone looking for one, a good ritual piece or even just an accessory to a costume.
He's for sale, but also would be willing to trade for an item of similar value.

He's on etsy here: [link]

Thanks! Jackrabbits are amazing creatures. From what I've heard, they're very difficult to taxidermy though!

Their skins are very thin and difficult to tan, Apparently it rips like wet paper.

Squirrel is supposed to work best. They're common and cheap and they have surprisingly tough hides that can take a lot of abuse.

yep, thats what i heard.
do you know anybody by chance who sells them cheap?
i looked on tax.net and hideandfur but somehow
there arent many out there now.
tanned and ready to mount would be best.
