The Jackal Wall 8D by BlackBackedJackal The Jackal Wall 8D by BlackBackedJackal
My collection of (primarily) black-backed jackal merch, complete with my jackal pelt I got when I first made this account, and my new dead mounted jackal c:!! The rest are all toys, stamps, coins, vintage prints, stamps, postcards, and a custom badge of my jackalsona, Nuru made by one of my tumblr followers >w<!! 

I'd still like to get a jackal head or shoulder mount for the wall eventually.

I've never seen a dead mount jackal!  You should bend the tail over, lax in death,

The colors down his back are amazing.

I love to find one of these that I can mount one day

I actually tired to bend it before lol! But I didn't wanna potentially break it so left it as is ;3;

And yeah he's SUPER silverly, came from a trophy hunter so I guess he wanted the best jackal he could get if he was gonna take one :0! 

I NEED like 12 mountable pelts like holy fuck lol. I'd deffo want a headdress and a soft mount by UrbanNature if I can ever find one for her to frickin' mount. We've been looking for a few years now with no luck, not a lot of people skin them for taxidermy from what I've seen ;A;

I wonder if they left the tail bone in, some people do, the down side is then you can't move the tail once it's dry.  Oh well, it's still a stunning piece!!

Most of the black back pelts I've come across have been very poorly skinned and are not mountable at all, often poorly tanned as well.  Sigh.  Such a beautiful dog, if you're going to bother to skin it, skin it right!  ;)

YESSSSS! I've been on the hunt for a good pelt that I could have mounted for a headdress (or even a soft mount lol) but jackals don't get skinned and prepped very well from what I've seen so it's rare to find a taxi-quality pelt of one ;A;!

Ebay, it was an old advertisement in a magazine in like the 50's I believe? Comparing a bunch of different canines on it. The jackal is in the bottom right corner c:

I need to ask the seller which taxidermist did the mount cause the work they did is just great!! I see do few jackal mounts that a. actually look like jackals, and b. aren't lacking in craftsmanship.

Yeah, most people make jackals look like coyotes, it's really sad :c  Hope you can find them!

IT IS, cause jackals have neat TEENY skulls that are even more streamlined then coyotes since they scavenge so much! Need tiny straight muzzles to rip all the meat from bones and such :p! But instead they all put too much of a 'stop' in the head part of most mounts so they look more dog-like and I'm like hhhhhhh nuuuuuu ;A;

Omg bird ones are awesome! Well having a ceiling mount is better anyway lol then its in danger on the floor xD I'm always scared something is going to happen to my red fox LS, he's way out of the way though xD

RIGHT OMG, I'd love to get a duck and a pheasant if I can ever get my hands on a bird one ;u;!!  LOL, my main reason is my pet rats live in this room, so incase they get out I have to keep the taxidermy high up so they can't nom on the toes :U! If I ever get any live sizes they have to be small enough to fit on a shelf or something, always afraid imma knock it over or spill something on it, idk xD;;

Thank you <3!! It's actually got one of the nicest jackal faces I've seen too :0. People derp them up ALL THE TIME, either use a coyote form that's too big/anatomically incorrect to the actual jackal face structure, or just fuck them up all together. Funny how a dead mount looks better then most of the live jackal mounts xD
