When we were house hunting last spring, we came across a large ranch style home that had a huge finished basement. When we walked downstairs, the first thing out of Lucky's mouth was, "I see animals!" and she wasn't kidding. I have never in my life been surrounded by so many stuffed and mounted animals. The home owner must have liked going on African Safari's or something. It was a seriously disturbing space.
That being said, I'm not opposed to an animal mount here or there, but I much prefer the fake variety. I could make one with balloons and paper mache, or I could shop for one. So far, these are the animals I've come across online (I have a strong preference for deer, although many of these options are available as other animals):
ZGallerie, Deer Head Large $249.95 (Small $49.95)
Amazon, Deer Head $42.99
Anthropologie, Savannah Story Bust Rhino, $68
Urban Outfitters, Cardboard Taxidermy, Small $28, Large $52
I've made no purchases as of yet, but I think something like this will be heading my way soon!
