How do we Clean our Skulls?

Each specimen at Skulls Unlimited International Inc. is carefully prepared with the use of dermestid beetles. Museums and universities have been using this method for nearly 100 years. Skulls Unlimited has made this museum quality preparation available to all public and private interests. Finally, each specimen is degreased and whitened using a chemical process. This process is an essential step that will ensure an attractive and sanitary trophy or display piece.

Skull Mounting

European Mount / European Mount Skull

In addition to cleaning your specimens, Skulls Unlimited provides a custom skull mounting service for many species. For the cost of the mount and labor, we will mount your trophy to a custom pedestal base. Alternatively, if you would prefer to buy the pedestal and assemble it yourself, it is easy to self-mount your specimen to the base (Mounting hardware not included). This classic 9 1/2" x 13" base is available in oak and walnut finishes. It also rotates so it may be displayed as a pedestal or a wall mount. Call or email us for a skull mounting quote.
