Originally native only to the Indian subcontinent, the Blackbuck is famous for its long, ringed horns that look like tightly wound corkscrews. This particular Blackbuck taxidermy mount is, of course, no exception. In addition to its trademark horns, average in size for this species, this specimen has beautiful, high-contrast coloring: while both its underbelly and the fur around its eyes are snow white, the rest of its body is chocolate brown. Given its stunning beauty and incredible craftsmanship, we feel this mount has earned a taxidermy quality rating of Excellent.
