This is an extra long post but I think you will like it. This week I reorganized all the bones in my room and got an amazing surprise. Dad added even more shelves so I could put even more skulls out.  This next picture is what my room looks like if you take a photo all around (click for a bigger one)






When I counted them there were exactly 100 skulls on display !( not including more that are in boxes). Dad took a picture of all my shelves, and I did a list so here is a list of all the skulls I have got !

I don't know why but it seems that my comment din't get to you, so I try it again.
Your collection is amazing! I really enjoy it and go over each one with my eyes. Very impressive are the stags with the antlers. It's a wish to have one too. The seal is also very cool. Where did you get it?
Man, your room looks like a little museum! I guess your friens have to pay an admission if they want to come in your room, haha ^^
Very very impressive collection. I see forward when you get a job one time and then you buy the big "junk" ;D

Jake said...

I got the seal from another collector called Mrs Powell and I swapped it for some red deer skulls. I am going to write about it soon. Glad you like my room !

Jay said...

What would you like to be when you grow up?

Jake said...

Hi Jay. An archeologist, I think.

Anonymous said...

how many skulls have you got now?

Anonymous said...

I have a few bones around my house. Not nearly as much as you though! Recently i found a squirrel skeleton in my backyard. Your collection is amazing!

Jake said...

@Anonymous2 - thanks !

Daniel said...
