Super Mouse to the rescue! I love Heather's work and my new little friend looks REALLY GREAT hanging above the spot where my husband sits. (Wink.) Thanks for the amazing mouse, the skull and great emails. REALLY quick shipping too. Awesome!

nThis little mouse skull arrived in perfect condition! Heather did a great job of preparing it and painted it with super detail. These are smaller than you'd think (or maybe that was just me forgetting how small mice are). Wonderful curiosity to add to your collection! And great seller to work with!

About

Custom, Novelty Taxidermy

I'm a novice novelty taxidermist who decided one day that the feeder mice at the pet store deserved an end with a little more imagination than at the maw of a snake. I sat down one Friday afternoon and decided the best way I was going to learn was to figure it out myself. Cue a trip to the library!

With a stack of books in front of me and what felt like an infinite amount of patience, I completed my first mount: Super Mouse, soaring through the air to save the day.

Despite the back ache and the sore fingers, I realized that giving new life to these mice was fun and satisfying. Now I'm just working on perfecting my technique and finding each and every one of the little guys loving homes.
