Wallaby Skeleton for Articulation
This listing is for the disarticulated Geriatric Pathological Wallaby Skeleton pictured! Boy is that a mouthful haha! You will receive the disarticulated Wallaby Skeleton pictured! This Wallaby is not 100% complete however it has been sorted and is 98% complete and definitely able to be articulated! Unfortunately the skeleton is missing it's claws and at least one upper phalange because the pelt was sent to another taxidermist to be mounted. This skeleton is very special to us as it has a pretty neat story! We received this Wallaby frozen whole from a Zoo in Wisconsin where it had passed away, we were told that this Wallaby had lived to be 20 years old and was the oldest Wallaby that specific zoo had ever housed! Whether or not this story is completely true we were never able to confirm, however it is what was told to us and is a neat background. During the necropsy this was very evident as nearly the entire mouth had disintegrated, the bone porous and full of holes. Three of the Wallaby's incisors fell out and healed during its lifetime and the other 3 are intact. Unfortunately due to this infection or disease the turbinates were also destroyed. We would like to offer whoever purchased this Wallaby photos of the animal with the fur on because it is not very often that those photos are available! The skeleton is sorted into the 5 bags pictured! The skeleton has been completely degreased and whitened, there is only one small grease spot on one of the leg bones. All of this is shown in the photos and reflected in the price!
Despite the potential missing pieces this is still a very good skeleton for articulation as stated and to study if you are interested in anatomy. It would also be a good choice if you are looking for bone materials to craft and/or work with and this is an excellent Wallaby Skull specimen at the very least. There are many different possible things to do with this skeleton!
