A little something I got for my birthday around Thanksgiving, how did they know? Not only do I like taxidermy I like taxidermy that is unusual and this would be one. Badgers are not normally game animals but here it is.
Badgers are the size of a medium sized dogs but they are very strong and known to be rather vicious. They go for the private parts so other predators tend to leave them alone. They are related to otters, weasels and skunks.
This ferocious beast is mounted in what is called a shoulder mount. It is 11" from the wall plaque to the the tip of the nose. Fairly sure this is an American Badger, highly likely as this is America where the American Badger is found.
