Here's an extremely rare find! This wildcat, native to Africa, certainly won't be found in many collections. We are very excited to have been able to acquire this full body mount and offer it for sale. The taxidermy on this animal is exceptional as is the habitat base. Due to a few repairs to nicks and scratches on the base's frame we have placed a quality rating on this piece of Excellent. It would make a perfect addition to any natural history museum with an African exhibit, collector of felines or any of the most prestigious taxidermy collections in the country.
