EXTRA LARGE TURKEY SNOOD SPECIMEN

Buyer receives the actual item pictured (not a stock photo) A snood is the long fleshy finger-like appendage that hangs off a male turkeys beak just above his nostrils. It is an indicator of a turkey's health and helps him attract a mate. (more about snoods here http://blog.audubonguides.com/2010/11/25/big-snoods/) The specimen has been professionally prepared and suspended in the same antimicrobial solution used by museums. 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 http://www.customcreaturetaxidermy.com.
