THE 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 wooden 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!
3" long x 2" tall x 5/8" deep

|GIANT SHARK TOOTH
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 the biggest are at the bottom of that page.
#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. SOLD

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!
|YOU 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 page!!)
We call this our "FOSSIL HAMBURGER". Can you guess what it is? You'll have to look in the Fossils Page 4 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.
Alert 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." Hal
|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!
ANSWER TO THE MYSTERY IVORY
Here's a good clue, to solve the mystery from above:
Yes! These are slices from a narwhal tusk, the 2nd is scrimshawed in Alaska by Inuit. A great birthday present from Glenn to Heidi.
Speaking 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:
