Marvin by CindarellaPop Marvin by CindarellaPop
I don't know if anyone remembers my little soft-mounted grey fox "Marvin" but he was a royal mess. I decided I couldn't leave it like that so I ripped the 'form' out of his head and fixed him up.

He's still got definite flaws (ears done improperly making them look too small, eyes are round-pupiled instead of slitted like a fox should be) but he looks infinitely better than how I had him before. I just need to sew up the case-skinning hole some more on his hind legs, fix his paws a bit and he'll be finished.

Marvin isn't for sale but I might trade him off for some quality pelts if anyone has a good one.

Note: This fox was taken legally by a trapper in the United States. He was not "skinned alive" or any other such PETA rubbish.

Aww man I love him XD
Any chance of him being for sale or trade in the future?

I'm willing to entertain offers on him now, actually. I'm realistically just looking to recoup the cost of the pelt, so if you'd like to trade or make an offer I'm willing to haggle.

Right now, I'm in the market for just about anything. The only thing I ask is that it has to be tanned, haha. Do you have something you're willing to part with?

A coyote would be perfect, actually. I had planned to do a coyote cape but when I got it, it was in such rough shape that I couldn't mount it. I've been on the lookout for a coyote to replace it.

I'm open to just about anything, really. I'm in the market for good garment grade fox mutations (I traded off my cross a while ago and I've been looking for a new one) or a taxidermy quality coyote cape. I bought a cheap cape that was supposedly taxidermy quality but when I got it, discovered it was missing too much lip and refused to rehydrate.

That's spelled "vegetarian," not "vegaterian." And good for you. I personally have no problem eating meat or wearing fur, but it's fine that you choose not to. Just don't complain to me for not sharing your viewpoint.

Cats kill for pure enjoyment.
Orcas torture seals by batting them about while they're still alive.
Chimps will kill one another if they dislike them by beating in their skull, and leaving them.

Must I go on? Humans are not the only ones to kill for fun. Also, it's not only for fun and enjoyment, obviously, meat is eaten, fur is used in ways such as this, hooves and bones for glue.

The only animal I've ever personally killed besides the usual bugs is fish. I've killed my own fish for dinner. What makes you think I kill animals for "pure fun and enjoyment?" I didn't kill Marvin. I bought him off a company that bought him off a wildlife auction.
