New goodies in the shop

I keep telling myself I'll try to stick with more of a bug theme in my shop, but when inspiration hits I have to take it as it comes.

So I've got a few snakes!
Diamondback Rattlesnake
Brown snake
Yes, I know snakes don't have eyelids... but they usually do have structures above their eyes that look like eyebrows that make them look a bit more menacing. I like that look. The fabric I found at the thrift store, it has a great texture to it.

I also have some Ediacarans - inspiration from my Evolving Earth class. They are extinct animals from before the Cambrian Explosion, 635 to 542 million years ago.
They're especially strange because of their fractal, tri-radial structure. No other animal since has had this kind of body plan. It came and went with the Ediacarans.

Also... if you're looking for a last minute silly Valentine's day gift, I've got a kissing bug:
Might sound romantic, but the name is from the fact that they bite people on the lips to suck their blood. Order Hemiptera, suborder Heteroptera, family Reduviidae (they don't really have a heart design, though, that was just me).

And... this little duckling. Made him this summer for an Adirondack show, he never sold, then I was holding him for someone who never followed through. So here he is, the lone little bird in my shop:
I'm working on even more custom orders now, keeping busy with sewing and with school. So far I've gotten As on all my exams, going to try my hardest to keep it up! Working on flashcards right now for Systematic Entomology - my absolute favorite class ever. Nothing excites me more than the organization of insects and knowing what everything is and how they're related.
