*****PLEASE READ! You may have noticed the blurry thumbnail –– because of complaints lodged by PETA or PETA-like individuals, Etsy has determined it politic to require that wet specimens be marked "mature" and their thumbnails obscured. Please understand that this does not in any way imply that there is actually something "mature" or restricted about wet specimens. All items presented for sale in my shop are 100% legal to sell and own, are nontoxic to possess or handle (though please do not eat them), and no animals were removed from the wild (or from life) for this purpose. For more information please see my About or Policies pages.*****

I really LOVE opossums, but I really hate thumbs. For some reason, thumbs are just really creepy, especially when on a severed hand and in a jar. This is a paw from an opossum (the oft-celebrated sole American marsupial) but you'd never guess it –– it looks like it came off a monkey or very small Neanderthal. A hand, perhaps, that once held the hand of someone it loved...or squeezed the throat of an enemy.

Fixed in formalin and now held in alcohol. I have both front and rear paws, the only difference being that the thumb on the front paws have a claw, and the rears do not. If you prefer one over the other, just include a note with your purchase –– otherwise, I'll just send you the best paw I have.
