Amanda, 18, female in south Florida. This is my secondary tumblr, here I will be posting about my collection of nature items such as bones, wet specimens, feathers, and occasionally animal pelts, etc. Check out my FAQ for a list of how I tag things! Send me an ask if you want me to tag something specific!

All bones were found out in nature, unless otherwise stated. I did not kill them for their bones. If you have any questions in general about bones or such, I will try and answer to the best of my abilities, or point you towards someone who knows better than me :)
(Also I make text posts on a semi regular basis. They are relevant to the subject of this tumblr though.)
I HAVE FUR PELTS, IF that bothers you it's best to leave now.

Excuseeee you Blue! I swear, this kitten is obsessed with anything dead. Found these two necklaces at goodwill, thought I’d scrap them for parts. One is bone beads and what I THINK is front deer teeth? And the other is dead coral. With all these beads I could make a buttload of earrings or single pendants, possibly to sell or give as gifts?  Heck yes :)

Dead Polydamas Swallowtail from my dad’s dutchman pipe! I’m currently raising ten of their very punk looking caterpillars. I’ve been super obsessed with insects lately. They make great pets.

(We have a gun expert at the house to see the guns I found in the back of my late grandfathers closet.)
Gun Guy: This one would be great for hunting squirrels in the backyard. I use one like this in my yard. I have 31 squirrels in my freezer. Want to see a picture? Oh but your daughter is here.
Dad: No you wouldn't be scaring her! She literally collects dead things. Like she gets skeletons from the side of the road and puts them in jars!
Gun Guy: You sicko! That's awesome!

27)Most infuriating bone problem?

SCREECHES

26) Do you have any plans to get a bone related job? Or taxidermy? Or something?

Oh man this is depressing. Probably not. I just started college and I’m just so pessimistic as to what the heck I will do for the rest of my life. Fuccckkkk :/

25) Do you name your skulls? Do you have a system to name them? Favorite name?

I don’t have many skulls really. I name all of my cats F- names (felix, felicis, fawn, frey, faux, fate, famine, fortune, francis, felidae. Ok, so I have a lot of cat skulls.), other things I either name by whatever the heck I like at the time, or something that has to do with their scientific name.

Days 20-24 (OOPS)

I found this feather a few blocks from my house, took a picture and left it where I found it. I’m presuming it’s something illegal to have, which sucks cause it was BEAUTIFUL! Anyone have an idea as to what it is?

19) How long have you been blogging about dead things?

Since March 26, 2012. OH SHIT I HAVE MY TWO YEAR ANNIVERSARY SOON!! It doesn’t seem that long. I didn’t really know what I was doing.
