The head of a large squid that has been professionally prepared and suspended in the same antimicrobial solution used by museums. Before dissection the entire animal measured approximately two feet long. At the time I wasn't able to find a jar large enough to accommodate the entire squid so I just saved the head. Jar measures approximately 2¾" tall with 2¼" diameter. This specimen is permanently preserved and will remain unchanged indefinitely when cared for properly. Please be wary of similar items offered elsewhere and make sure what you purchase was preserved professionally and not by a hobbyist. Specimens may seem fine upon initial inspection but if they have not been properly prepared they will begin to slowly decompose, often beginning to show signs of early decay within the first year. I have been preparing wet specimens for 10 years and encourage you to visit my website and review my credentials

As with everything I sell, no animals were killed for the purpose of creating the items I offer. I only use animal materials that would otherwise be thrown away. I believe wasting any part of an animal is disrespectful to Mother Nature, so I recycle every single piece I possibly can. I have been creating shrines, fetishes, and totems from animal remains for over 20 years. To learn more about me, my art, and my credentials, please see my Etsy profile page
