Description

You get one real preserved Taxidermy Dried Large Puffer Blowfish Porcupine Fish Lighting Animal Specimen Pendant Light Lamp. These are approximately 13 inches long. Spine lengths vary but some of them have spines over an inch long. Some of them have shorter spines but fatter bodies. Their skin is covered with dark brown blotches which are its natural coloring. Translucent gossamer fins stick out to the side like ears.

These taxidermied fish are about 13 inches long and 8 inches wide and have been puffed out, dried, and a protective coating has been applied. Silly acrylic google eyes have been affixed where the real eyes once were. Photos are stock photos, you will not get this exact fish but one similar. Each fish has the same basic look but varies slightly in the shape it has been dried and may have holes in areas, especially by the gill slits and under the tail, sometimes other places. Some of them have holes patches with grey or tan colored putty (they are made a bit different each time depending on who stuffed them originally, sometimes with holes left alone, sometimes with holes patched in various ways) There are no perfect fish, each one is unique, but all are sturdy and solid.

A hole has been drilled out of the hard skin at the top and a pendant lamp light fixture inserted directly inside the animal. The light has a 6 foot silver cord with inline rotary on/off switch and takes easy to find standard nightlight candelabra bulbs. The light assembly is clipped into the top of the fish and can be easily removed by pinching the clips, in case of need of bulb change. Comes with a length of fishing line attached for hanging. You should hang the fish by the fishing line provided or by another hanging mechanism of your choosing but not by the electrical cord itself. This prevents long term wear and tear on the electrical cord.

These fish have been cut open from the top to remove the meat and then sewn shut along the top line. Most fish have two holes where the 2 gills once were. Some fish may have gash imperfections as visible in the 2nd and 3rd photos of this one but they will not compromise the strength of the stiff skin. Sometimes gashes are filled with dark grey filler to match the natural dark grey patterns of the fish, 5th photo shows a fish with the dark grey filler across the top (this one has not yet been made into a lamp). Please don't expect perfect fish. Each fish has to go through a lot of processing and shipping phases before it finally reaches puffer lamp status! They have been dried and preserved and only have a slight polyurethane smell. These lighted puffer fish nightlights have become popular items at tiki bars and as nautical or Hawaii theme decorations. More types of puffer and puffer lamps available here:
https://www.etsy.com/shop/EvasFeathers/search?search_query=puffer&order=date_desc&view_type=list&ref=shop_search .

When alive, the flesh of the puffer fish is highly toxic due to tetrodotoxin, a poison that is 10 times more dangerous than cyanide. It is estimated that one puffer fish can contain enough poison to kill 30 people. Yet the Japanese consider puffer fish to be a delicacy when properly prepared. Every year, people die from consumption of improperly prepared puffer fish! The skin and spines by themselves as preserved here are not poisonous, just weird looking. But the spines are very sharp and rigid so be careful handling them. These fish look delicate but they are surprisingly tough. (I have been poked many times...)

Returns and exchange details

Please contact me if you have any problems with your order. My goal is to make you happy. I do my best to describe items accurately so that each customer will fully understand the product. Please be advised that USPS and other shipping companies are often not diligent about their scanning and tracking systems and that tracking info provided may not always be up to date. Also please understand that I have no power to influence the correct transit of a package once it is given to the shipping company, occasionally packages will be delayed in transit or rarely even lost and I am not able to prevent that. If it should ever occur that a customer is not satisfied with an order once received, I am willing to refund the original cost of the item promptly upon return shipment and receipt of the item. If the problem is due to an error on my part, I will also refund shipping costs. Thank you so much for your time and attention, -Eva

Shipping policies

I typically ship either the same day or the next day after the order, not including Sundays and post office holidays. Once in a while I may need an extra day for items that require a lot of fabrication. Or occasionally I may be out of town for a few days, see shop notifications at the top of the shop home page for latest info. When your item ships, you will receive notification from Etsy to the email address on file.

Please be advised that shipping companies including USPS are often not diligent about scanning packages at every stop along the way, they are only diligent about scanning for the final delivery stop. They are supposed to scan the whole way but often skip it. Thus packages may look to be not moving at all on tracking which may mean they are delayed or it may just mean that they are moving normally but have not been scanned at each stop. Most of the time, even slow or delayed packages will eventually arrive at destination but I do not have any power to fix problems once USPS has the package. USPS employees only know the same tracking info we can see and they do not have the power to know anything other than that or to find any packages not showing on tracking. I have many times tried to get them to look or to open investigations and all efforts are to no avail. Unfortunately the only solution for delayed packages is to wait and other shipping companies aren't any better. Tracking only shows where the package was previously, it usually does not show where the package actually is in real time right now.

How items are typically shipped depends on the item but here is what is typical:
--Light weight items under 16 oz: USPS 1st class mail, usually 2 to 5 days in transit but sometimes longer.
--1 pound to 2 pound packages: USPS priority mail, described as 2 to 3 day shipping by USPS
--Heavier items: USPS parcel post, 2 to 9 days delivery.
Transit times are only estimates and averages, sometimes it takes longer for some unfathomable reasons that even USPS can't explain. The closer you are to California where it ships from and the more populated your region, the faster the package will likely arrive. For more expensive packages, I may add shipping insurance.

Sorry, I am not able to ship overnight express, overnight packages require a very early special trip to the post office to catch a delivery deadline in the middle of the day and I am not able to do that .

In all cases, I am reliant on the post office to do its job and so am not able to guarantee transit times. I do my best to ship quickly but sometimes there will be mix ups at the post office. Sometimes a package disappears for a while in the postal system or off of tracking, sometimes even for 3 weeks, But usually it shows back up again and gets delivered eventually. If your package does not seem to come in a timely fashion, please let me know. There is not much I can do about the item once I have already sent it but I will do my best to work with you on it. This happens maybe 1% of the time but is beyond my control and I cannot fully guarantee any shipping times because of it. Even USPS overnight is only 'guaranteed' by the post office in that they will refund shipping if it doesn't make it on time, and sometimes it doesn't.

At all times, the buyer is responsible for inputting their correct shipping address. Please verify that you have the correct shipping address in the shipping information before buying. I will not take responsibility for incorrect shipping addresses. Certainly I will do my best to catch any problems but cannot guarantee that I will always be able to do so. In addition, once a package is listed as 'delivered' by the shipping company, I can no longer accept responsibility for it. Buyer is responsible for any and all security or delivery issues once a package has been listed as delivered by the shipping company.

INTERNATIONAL BUYERS:
Be advised that customs offices and mail systems often get jammed and back logged before Christmas and items sometimes can take over 4 weeks to arrive, depending on which route it needs to go through. Canada is especially famous for this problem and many international packages cannot be tracked. Sorry, you may have to wait a long time sometimes! Each country and route is different in that regard so I can't make any shipping time guarantees. Also be advised that wildlife products cannot be legally shipped out of the country. Out of country orders are typically sent USPS 1st class mail if 4 pounds or under and USPS international priority mail if over 4 pounds. I reserve the right to decline and refund certain sales to some countries if I feel there maybe too many problems shipping to that country.

Buyers outside of the USA are responsible for any and all customs fees, duties, taxes, VAT, laws, etc on their end. I use USPS for most out of country shipping because they have agreements with many countries that lessen customs fees, but fees will vary greatly by country and by level and extent of enforcement. I apologize but I am also not willing to write 'gift' on out of country orders (unless it truly has been provided free of charge). I will report item values truthfully. If you are in a country not listed in the shipping options, contact me and I will try to find out the shipping details for your location and let you know but remember that I am not able to ship wildlife product out of country.

Thank you so much for your time! :-)
