Complete Chihuahua Skeleton in a Bag
Over at Skulls Unlimited they're selling this complete Chihuahua Skeleton in a plastic bag. Some assembly required. "This is a One-of-a-Kind Item. Once this item has sold, it will be removed from the web site." Yours for $449.
Notice the molera, or skull hole on top where the skull has not fused and in fact leaves the brains exposed. This defect is considered by some Kennel Club patrons to be the sign of "a good one" as the skull of the dog is too small to cover the brain. The "Chihuahua for Dummies" book, I should note, rushes in to say "a molera is not a defect," which no doubt is comforting news to the dummies. Here's a hint: a massive hole in the top of the skull of an adult animal is a defect. Of course, the Chihuahua community also counts the wrecked dental structure of their breed as simply another attribute as well.
