A friend of mine lives on an island where these mongooses are a non-native invasive species. They eat the eggs and young of native animals - some of which are critically endangered. Though the island has a cull program in place, not much is done with the pelts of the mongooses killed, so my friend has experimented with crude tanning methods to help preserve them.
This pelt has been SOLD, but I do have another which is tanned a little better than this, and I'm on the fence about selling it because it's actually kind of cool. If I did offer it for sale, how many people would be interested if the asking price were in the $40.00 range?
