The Deathstalker Leiurus Quinquestriatus this Scorpion is arguably the deadliest scorpion in the world. 2018 is off to a good start first thing I've mounted this year so far and what better to start off with the one of the deadliest in the world I will be posting better photos in a week or two when this specimen is dry and I can remove all the pins #taxidermy #entomology #deathstalker #leiurusquinquestriatus #scorpions #scorpion #arachnid #deadly

Hadronyche versuta the blue mountains funnel web spider I just finished the final touches on her this is the largest funnel-web spider that me and my mate have ever collected we collected this beautiful specimen on 3/12/2017 down in Oakdale in Sydney it's a true Rarity for a funnel-web to reach this size it would probably take it about 20 years to reach a size like this it took me a very long time to stuff and mount this specimen I had to dissect the abdomen and clean out all of the innards and insert a black dyed cotton piece into the abdomen membrane and then glue it back together after it had finished drying I'm very happy with the final product #taxidermy #entomology #Hadronycheversuta #bluemountains #funnelweb #funnelwebspider #deadly #rare #spider #Sydney #nsw #australia #arachnid #giant

Collection this beautiful Ornithoptera Richmondia the other day was not in very good condition but it is a butterfly I've wanted to catch since I was a kid 1 to tick off The Bucket List 😁 now before any of you hater's start getting on here and telling me I can't do that just so you all know I have a economical sustainability collecting licence and this specimen was not in a national park and also I did not keep it even though I could have if I wanted to. It was great to spend the day with my dad out in the rainforest collecting and swimming it was a day I won't ever forget #ornithoptera #ornithopterarichmondia #entomology #GoldCoast #Queensland #australia #Lepidoptera #beautiful #bucketlist #butterfly #rare
