Mounting a Coatimundi

Mounting a Coatimundi

by Bob Mead

Coatimundis (Nasua Nasua), are members of the raccoon family, and are interesting little critters to mount. Coatimundis range from Arizona and parts of southern New Mexico in the United States through Mexico (except the Baja peninsula and central Sierra Madres), and Central America to Panama and marginally into South America in areas west of the Andes, especially in Colombia. Coatis walk with their ringed tails held high, and when climbing, their tails are used for balance. Their ankles are double jointed and extremely flexible, enabling them to descend trees headfirst. With their elongated noses and miniature bear-like faces, coatimundis present a few taxidermical challenges that are not difficult to overcome. A little attention to details and preparation will ensure a unique and stunning mount for your client.

Buffleheads Reference Study

by Larry Blomquist

What is the difference between a bufflehead and a goldeneye? Bufflehead are smaller than goldeneyes. Both birds at a distance have bright white sides, but common and barrow’s goldeneyes have a white patch just behind the bill. Buffleheads drakes have a large white patch on the back of their heads. Female buffleheads are more uniform brown, with a white patch on the head that female goldeneyes lack.
