Though we're not a "taxidermy" anymore, bone and skull cleaning is still one of our core supporting trades. As of 2018 we are no longer sourcing any wildlife specimens via monetary trade. This means wild-foraged & nature-cleaned bones, specimens from the livestock we raise, and (though extremely rare) specimens from personal hunting. We only take wildlife for food or farm security.
All of our bones are cleaned naturally and whitened gently.
We do not bleach or boil any bones!


Don't see what you're looking for? We come by many curious things, just drop us a line!




We use a combination of natural maceration and dermestid beetles to clean our bones and skulls. The bones listed on this page are limited to bones not currently for sale on Etsy.
Much of what you see here comes from specimens sourced from the hunting and trapping trades in years by-gone. We no longer source bones this way, though we still have a small stock of these items.


Looking for something specific? We have many odds and ends, just ask!

Dermestid beetles are a carrion beetle whose larvae feed on organic matter... they are particularly fond of dried flesh! A healthy colony can gently clean large skulls and skeletons in a matter of days, making them the choice for bone cleaning by museums around the world.
Dermestids are available seasonally, please contact for availability.

$15 - 100+ Beetles & Larvae (free shipping)
$50 - 500+ Beetles & Larvae (free shipping)

Dermestids are silent, dry, low-odor, and non-offensive. These little black tuxedoed beetles are both prolific and gentle; they do not bite. Their larvae are brown and fuzzy and do most of the bone cleaning work as they grow. Colonies of a few hundred or many thousands can be kept easily. Detailed information on how to care for your beetles will be included with every beetle order.
