The African Common Quail often runs along the ground in front of big game hunters, but is rarely hunted. This is only the second one we've ever had in stock! This male quail has been perched on a simple wooden habitat base. The white feathers of its chest contrast nicely with the brown feathers of the body and the chocolate feathers of the neck and head. The smaller size of the mount makes it easy to fit into any room with nature-inspired decor. It has a taxidermy quality rating of Premier due to both the quality of the taxidermy and the rarity of the mount.
