Fox Rondel by CabinetCuriosities Fox Rondel by CabinetCuriosities
Sorry to spam :) The weather was nice today and I decided to take out all my foxes - well and one of Christinas.

From left to right:

1. silver fox
2. pearl fox
3. blue fox
4. polar fox
5. grey fox
6. tundra blue fox
7. platinum gold fox
8. silberian red fox
9. cross fox

A year ago I said to myself: You are just allowing yourself to buy and keep 5 pelts!

Lol. Failed.

From a lot of sources. Mostly Ebay or from trades with other collectors :)

The desire to scoop all of these up and snuggle them is more incredible than the rage of the Hulk.

I know D: Everytime I see that photo I remember all the pelts I don't have anymore and suddenly I want all of them back.

I don't think I'd be able to part with them after I got them! I'd have an entire home /filled/ with my babies and a 'Trigger Warning' on my front door stating "Caution! This home contains countless items of Taxidermy and Curiosities. Do NOT Enter if you're easily upset by these things!" 
I'd probably keep my living area and kitchen /mostly/ clear, for some of my vegan friends, but... it'd be dodgy letting them inside as a given xD

I parted with a lot of them.
From all the foxes you see above I only have four left.
And all the ones which are not on the picture of course :)

Next summer I will make a new rondel.

Ohmygod I can't even IMAGINE parting with those beauties ;_;
I actually am in the process of permits to purchase and own a living breathing silver like the one on the end to be my beloved pet :heart:

I have a solid main group of foxes I will not part with but some of my others are just...
I like all of them but only a few I really love.
And if there is a pelt I like but I wouldn't miss I am always opened for trades/sales.

Foxes must be great pets. Though they are still wild.

Here we have a breeder who has been 'domesticating' them for generations from selectively picked parents. She does amazing work with them and I've heard from someone who got a kit from her that going into the house, is like going into a petting zoo filled with foxes who want to sit all over you :heart: I'm very excited, hehehe. All foxes are wild, deep down, and I will never deny that, but some are a little more family material than others ;)

I get the favorite pelt versus could part with for a potential /new/ favorite pelt. Stubsy, whenever she arrives in the mail, will always be my favorite fox and my first fox :heart: Can't wait to soft mount her.

We don't have any of these in America. Poop. All we have are smelly old coyotes who can't carry a tune in a basket.

I'm not sure what part of Canada you live in but here in B.C we have lots of foxes, but like your problem with deer they often approach people for food due to tourists.

Gorgeous pelts! I've been sort of wanting a fax pelt myself, but have no idea how to go about getting one. Where did you get yours, and about how much were they?

I got my pelts from trades, ebay or etsy.
We are selling fox pelts, too.

They were between 30€ and 200€.

Wo habt ihr denn die ganzen Felle her? >w<
Das frage ich mich bei allen Sammlern/Taxidermisten immer wieder.
Bestimmt nicht nur aus dem Internet, oder? I'D
Mounted ihr eigentlich auch selber? (Woah, erschlag mich nicht wenn der Begriff 'Mounted' falsch ist)

Öh...also angefangen hat es mit Stolas von Ebay, dann meinem ersten richtigen Fuchs (der sibirische) den ich durch viel glück auch von ebay hatte. Der cross stammt von ebay.
Der Platinum kommt von einem tausch...der graufuchs von etsy. Silberfuchs von einem Tausch ;D
Und den Tundra Blaufuchs habe ich von Christina gekauft.
:)

Noch mounten/stopfen wir nicht selbst. Aber bald!

Woah >o<
Die sehen alle total flauschig aus.
Ich hätt' auch gerne nen paar Felle/Soft Mounts von verschiednene Fuchs-Farbschlägen
Ich spare zur Zeit ja auch auf einen RedFox Softmount von ~Phoenix-Cry
Wär ich nicht so untalentiert würde ich auch versuchen, selber zu mounten I'D

...
Diese Worte aus meinem Mund/Händen.
Ich war vor wenigen Wochen extrem Anti-Taxidermy. Ich weiß auch nicht was mich zu diesme extremen Umschwung brachte b:

Taxidermy fängt einen sehr schnell ein.
Vor Allem wenn das Produkt sehr schön und ästhetisch ist.

Und weich natürlich.

Ich fand Taxidermy eigentlich immer respektlos dem Tieren gegenüber, aber irgendwie ... bin ich zu 'Ach, wenn das Tier schon tot ist kann man es auch erhalten' übergegangen I'D
Und die meisten Stücke sehen ja wirklich wunderschön aus.

:iconcabinetcuriosities:
CabinetCuriosities Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2012  Hobbyist Artist
Ja, es gibt die wirklich respektlose Schiene und die, wie ich finde, äußerst respektvolle :)
Und dem toten Tier hilft es in der Tat kein Stück einfach das Fell zu verbrennen ^^

Jedenfalls bin ich nun völlig auf den Taxidermy-Fan Zug gesprungen :'>
Schädel & Pfote bekomme ich von euch,
Ich spar auf ein Soft-Mount Redfox den ich auch spätestens nächsten Monat bezahlen kann,
Von Ebay bekomm ich bald einen Rotfuchs Schweif
... und ich plane meeeeehr I'D ...

WHY NOT!!?!? D: you are so mean!! (lol)

And don't worry about your pelts obsession...When I started to collect wildlife item I told to myself to get only 3 fox pelts (silver, red and cross) and well... I'm getting my sixth on September and later on a soft mount LOL. We both failed together...YAY! :D
