Fulmars,nest and egg.

Pure self indulgence, my site so to speak, therefore the content whislt derived from others is at the discreation of the contributors. The adult birds, egg have been completed as has the case. The birds died of natural causes and the egg is a faithful reproduction. Again we were going to undertake an in-depth examination as to how to do this but frankly better to leave it to those lesser taxidermists to work it out for themselves.
Fulmars in their completed case. Not for sale and pure self-indulgence.

Fulmar (Fulmarus glacialis)
As members of Procellaridae and then the order Procellariiformes, they share certain traits. First, they have nasal passages that attach to the upper bill called naricorns. Although the nostrils on the Albatross are on the sides of the bill. The bills of Procellariiformes are also unique in that they are split into between 7 and 9 horny plates. Finally, they produce a stomach oil made up of wax esters and triglycerides that is stored in the proventriculus. This is used against predators as well as an energy rich food source for chicks and for the adults during their long flights. It will matt the plumage of avian predators, and can lead to their death. They also have a salt gland that is situated above the nasal passage and helps desalinate their bodies, due to the high amount of ocean water that they imbibe. It excretes a high saline solution from their nose. The genus name Fulmarus is derived from the Old Norse word full meaning foul, and mar meaning gull. This foul-gull is in reference to their stomach oil, which they are able to vomit over potential attackers when threatened.



Fulmar egg, expertly and faithfully re-created. The egg is 74mm x 51mm if you want to check for yourselves. The egg has also been hand painted following consultation with many reference images. We do not advocate and or condone the taking of wild birds eggs. No need as all you need is talent. Again many hours go into these detailed cases for them to ever be for sale. Ask your local "taxidermist" to do it and send us the results, we would love to see the end product.

Fulmar egg, expertly and faithfully re-created. We know of eggs being made from turned wood, clay and epoxy-sculpt. All these mediums result in a solid egg, which looks dull and yup "solid". Eggs need to be hollow as to allow light to penetrate to create a degree of opacity within the subject matter. Now thats the hard bit, oh and being able to paint also helps. For example, there are 6 different colours used in the above egg and many layers to acheive the depth. If you cannot do this then stick to the solid dull ones.
