South African Impala Shoulder Mount

About

This is an incredible African Impala taxidermy shoulder mount, posed in an upright position looking straight out into the room. This piece features lovely thick, soft hair, expert taxidermy craftsmanship, and an incredible set of horns. The impala is a medium-sized antelope species found throughout the south-eastern parts of Africa, most commonly found in savannahs and "the bush". Both the male and female impala have a distinct glossy coat, which is reddish brown in color, with a white underbelly and a distinct "M" shaped marking on their rear. The male impala grows stunning black 'ringed' horns, which curve back over the head, and can grow up to 30+ inches in length. Male impalas use these horns to show off and battle over mates in the breeding season.
