    One question, though. How are they getting these animals?

    I think that they find them dead in the wild, read it somewhere on their site.

    Ah, here it is.

    "NOTE: These spiders were collected in the wild after death by natural causes and were not killed for this item. "

    That sounds. . . a little shaky at best. Where are these invertebrate graveyards, exactly?

    Could be true, if they, for example have low sales. Who likes spiders anyway, yuck. Scary things. Don't wanna get killed if it bites me!

    :D

    I looked around and found a spot on their about us page:
    http://www.skullsunlimited.com/index_aboutus.php
    "We do not condone and will not support poaching of animals, nor do we approve of destroying an animal solely for the purpose of gaining an osteological item. Our suppliers and their sources obtain osteological material from natural & predator deaths, road kills, food source by-products in exotic regions, legal hunting & trapping operations, and from attrition in zoological gardens. You can be assured of, and take comfort in knowing that your purchase conserve treasures and promote the ethical utilization of limited resources."

    I noticed on the other items that not all the spider/invert items say "natural death" on it. Maybe an email will answer ;)

    Alrighty, through email I got the answer that they don't know if all the items are natural deaths. As they get them from another provider over seas.

    None the less, they still look cool. If I get one though it will be one that says natural death on it.

    Happy posting everyone
