This Javelina, also known as the Collared Peccary, has been captured in a fierce and lifelike pose. The taxidermy is very good and the tusks are quite large. However, this is an older mount showing some signs of age. Nevertheless, this would make a fantastic addition to a natural history or outdoor life display in a museum or visitor center or to the home or office of a collector of taxidermy.
