Mummified common ostrich head.

Did you know, ostriches don't actually bury their head in the sand?  This was a misconception which came about from Pliny the Elder who speculated that ostriches think that their whole body is concealed when sticking their head in a bush.  This myth could have also come from how they "eat" sand and pebbles to help digest their food.

Photos form part of the description and price includes worldwide shipping.

All the remains I sell are over 100 years old for the law, ethically sourced and respect of the living friends and relatives, I would never sell any remains with a known name as this may upset the living and that is in my opinion disrespectful. If someone is disrespected with no link to a random skull then that is their opinion and in my mind not disrespectful.
