DINOSAUR EMBRYO in JAR
#W-200. Dinosaur embryo in jar
(71/2") (Latex, folks...fooled ya!) Check out the alien embryo on
the Aliens Page 3! Wow!
OUT OF PRODUCTION, SORRY!
"CLOTHING" OF PAPUA, NEW GUINEA for men only
PENIS GOURDS for sale
Yes, indeed. This is "clothing" for the Papua New Guinea men from
the Mumeri and Dani tribes, called "phallocrypts".
These hand-decorated gourds are
worn over these "sensitive" areas for everyday use, some for

Any clue what this slice of ivory is from? ...
Walrus? Nope. Mammoth? No
again. Give up? See the bottom of the page.
This is a scorpion done in a copper wire wrapping style. 1
1/4" long and high. I assure you, he's SAFE!
DISPLAY ONLY, our last one has sold.
FOREST NESTING FROG
#W-NEST-15 My favorite - called the Rain Forest Food
Chain Nesting Doll set. The frog
eats the chick eats the beetle eats the bug eats the caterpillar. Set of 5
that fit within another. Sizes from 2 1/2" down to 3/8". They all fit inside the
frog. A wonderful gift for young or old!
LOOK at the color change!! Three guesses what this is - opal?
Nope. Snake skin? Nope. It's a bit of fossilized shell from
the Chambered Nautilus SHELL (fossil form called Ammonite) that is 65 million years
old. This color is found in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada in an open mine where titanium
was naturally absorbed by the shell fossils to create this iridescence.
This color of fossil is called "Ammolite". Our Las Vegas wire
wrapper did a lovely job, as usual, making this into a pendant. Find more on the "Pendants"
This is a real Amethyst Stalactite section, from Brazil.
About a year ago, miners came across these formations - not cathedral amethyst
with the gemstones inside, but actual stalactites with the crystals on the
OUTside. They are amazing! Also see the stalactite slices made into
jewelry, or sold unmounted in the "Pendants" and "Rocks &
Minerals" pages. Cool, isn't it?
SNAKE BITE BOX
The SNAKE BITE BOX! (also known
as the "Snake in box"). You have a mean streak,
this one's for you - hand it to a friend, they innocently slide the top open
and voila! The snake pops up and "bites" their finger with his
tongue! Endless fun...I hate to admit it, but teachers have bought it to
torture their poor students. The mischievous look of glee on a child's
face when they open it ONCE is enough for a lifetime - their first thought is
who to fool next!
long x 2" tall x 5/8" deep

Here's the biggest Carcharodon megalodon (prehistoric great
white) shark tooth we have - a whopping six and seven/eighth's inches
long! The record is 7 inches, latest count (not for sale - sorry folks! but lots of large
ones on the Shark pages 2 and
#S-899 WHAT IS THIS? A skin with a
hole in the middle - what kind of critter would this be?
Actually, if you fold this in half at the hole, you will see this is an
entire shark skin. The hole is where the jaw went. This is a
rare acquisition of a complete SHARK SKIN including the denticles (this is
what makes the shark skin feel rough, these have not been buffed
off). Pieces of shark skin such as this were often used before
sandpaper was made. These come from the legal shark fishing
industry, and are usually made into wallets, etc. The meat is sold
to restaurants and all other parts of the shark are used. We are
offering 4" x 4" squares from this skin as a collector's item.

Gee, how appropriate - we debuted our "Rat Mummy" at the same time as
the new "Ben" sequel movie...scared yet? What big teeth you
have...the better to...YUM! If you haven't figured it out yet, we're ALL

BLUE RIBBON WINNER
This is our WEIRD MUSEUM (only a small part of it, of course, there's LOTS more
in the store) but this is the display that won the blue ribbon at a recent Shell
Show for "Most Unusual Display", hands down. Folks have to tour
the store to find out what's real and what's not...have YOU toured the website
enough to decide?
Something you DON'T want to see in your rear view mirror!
CAN SEE the sound barrier being BROKEN
This is a real photo of what it looks like when the sound barrier is being
broken! July 7, 1999, on the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and Japan,
Ensign John Gay could see the fighter plane heading for the aircraft carrier
Constellation. At 1,000 feet, the pilot drops the F/A-18C Hornet to
increase his speed to 750 mph, vapor flickering off the curved surfaces of the
plane. In the precise moment a cloud in the shape of an egg forms around
the Hornet 200 yards from the carrier, Gay hears an explosion and snaps the
camera shutter once. At sea level, a plane must exceed 741 mph to break
the sound barrier. The pressure change condenses the water in the air as
the jet passes these sound waves, creating this vapor oval to the point of the
explosion. Cool or what? (MORE on the Zany
We call this our "FOSSIL HAMBURGER". Can you guess what it
is? You'll have to look in the "Fossils" category to find the
rest of the story!!
These are fossilized
coral found off the coast of Alaska, we originally thought they were
fossilized tree branches.
customer Hal gave us a heads up with the correct information on this coral
- He says:
It is a
form of coral that lives in fairly deep water. I was a Blackcod fisherman
on the west coast of Canada and we use traps, occasionally we would set
the traps in areas that when we brought them up would snag some of this
coral and it would come to the surface alive. it is beautiful and i have
had specimens several feet high. also they would sometimes have a species
of barnacle on them with plates that look like fig leaves and are a
stunning porcelain color and light shines through them. we always called
the coral, "Red tree coral", because of the color that they are
when the come up. we would dry them and then scrape the outside off and
inside is the branch that you have there. hope this helps you. Have
a great day and have fun collecting weird and wonderful things."
|Here's the poop!
(Petrified, that is)
Have you ever seen so much poop? This is
fossilized turtle poop from a Shelton, Washington dinosaur dig. It is 67 million
years old. We recently purchased forty pounds! Look for GREAT
specimens on the Just Poop pages!
And here's our King Poop...
This 10-1/2" specimen is in our own bizarre personal collection...how
twisted can we get? If you share our interest, look on the Just Poop pages
for lots more!
TO THE MYSTERY IVORY
Here's a good clue, to solve the mystery from
Yes! These are slices from a narwhal
tusk, the 2nd is scrimshawed in Alaska by Inuit. A great birthday
present from Glenn to Heidi.
of the narwhal, here's an excellent scientific article on the narwhal
tusk, finding that the narwhal can detect changes in the salinity of the
sea water using their tusks:
