Item details

This is a listing for four and a half (4.5) ounces of beautiful, all-natural lichen. Individual clusters and pieces typically range from 1/2" to 2", and a few odd pieces may still be attached to a thin bit of coniferous bark. The majority of the lichen is usnea laponica, with a fair bit of lichen rhizoplaca in the mix. Several other unidentified species may be present as well. Some pieces are dried, others are soft and fresh; you may be able to nurture living lichen with a little TLC (and H20). These unique lichen clusters are wild and naturally organic, grown many miles from any big agriculture, spraying, or smog. Our lichen is harvested in conjunction with routine forestry maintenance on the farm, with minimal impact on the ecosystem. Perfect for a wide variety of crafts and applications, from models and miniatures, to terrariums and florariums, to fairy gardens and living paintings, to scrapbooking and natural crafting, and more!

Please inspect the photos carefully for any undesired features, this is the exact lot you will receive. For reference, this 4.5 ounce lot equals about 216 cubic inches, which is the size of a 6"x6"x6" box.
Custom quantities and requests are welcome!

Species: usnea laponica, lichen rhizoplaca, may also include others
Condition: see photos
Size: 1/2 - 2 inch +/- pieces
Weight: 4.5 oz.

*If using in terrariums, please remember to do due diligence when introducing anything wild-sourced to captive-bred living creatures :)

FAQs

Here’s the scoop: Wildlife has international trade regulations. The fees, permits, and lengthy processes have made it impractical for me to continue offering international wildlife shipment. The good news: Items from domesticated species have no USA export regulations. I can ship domesticated species worldwide with no additional export fees. Remember: Always check your local customs and regulations before importing any animal specimens!

I do not trap. I do hunt, but not for business. Wildlife is only ever taken for food or farm security. Precious few of my wildlife specimens will have come from personal hunting. The vast majority of my wildlife items are salvaged “waste” from the hunting and trapping trades, where it is commonplace for most of the animal to be discarded. This unique form of “recycling” offers folks a chance to use and honor pieces that would otherwise have been thrown away! As of 2018, none of our bones will have had any monetary exchange attached to them; we clean foraged and salvaged bones only!

Additional policies

REGARDING WOLF, BLACK BEAR, COUGAR, AND LYNX:
Etsy does not allow the sale of products or specimens derived from these species, HOWEVER it IS legal for my business to trade and export these species. These bans are NOT based on any federal laws or legal restrictions. You can check here for current inventory on these species:
http://www.desertrosetaxidermy.com

If you would like to place a custom order for one of these species, please message me on Etsy, or send an email to contact [!at] DesertRoseTaxidermy.com.
Some states/countries may restrict the import, purchase, or ownership of bear, wolf and cougar, so please check with your local Fish and Game and know your wildlife laws before placing an order.

OWL, HAWK, RAVEN, AND OTHER MIGRATORY BIRDS AND BIRDS OF PREY:
I get a lot of custom requests for items from birds of prey and other migratory species. Nearly all migratory birds are federally protected, and it is illegal to possess any part (bone, nest, or feather) of these animals. I cannot help you with your quest for these specimens!
