Fine Taxidermy Yellow Headed Caracara by Sinke & Van Tongeren

US$11,831.70

About

This bird of prey is not kept in captivity very often. Although they are not threatened in the wild, they are very hard to find with the right paperwork that enables you to own a species like this. This one was born in captivity and has the right papers of course. The Yellow headed caracara is one of the few animals that actually benefits from the deforestation in South America. They used to eat insects from tropical mammals like the Tapirs and Sloths and Capybaras. But because lots of forest is now changed into cattle ground they now have millions of cows to eat from. This changed their status from being ‘rare’ into ‘common’. Therefor for this work we gave him a large prey in its beak. More than he can eat. It is a Spiny-tailed Lizard. So, is it really a treat? Note: All animals used for our work came from captivity and died on natural causes. No animals are raised or killed for our work. The works of Dutch Artists Sinke and van Tongeren are inspired by golden age old master painters like d' Hondecoeter, Weenix, Snyders, Bachelier and others. They are beautiful collections of rare exotic animals in flamboyant striking poses and dramatic compositions. Their sculpting skills enables them to create animals that act almost like in a human manner.
