Using a real skull for spider terrarium

Okay so I did a lot of thinking and saved a lot of money to buy a real human skull for my tarantula, yet before I buy the skull I'm having some concerns about it.

Could the skull harm my tarantula?
I want to keep the skull in excellent condition while it's in the terrarium, what methods should I do?

Now before you ask, I'll answer them for you

>Why do you want a real human skull?
Because I think it looks cool
>Why not just an animal skull?
It just doesn't work for this, it has to be a human skull
>You're not respecting the dead
That's why I'm asking how to keep the skull in great condition, the skull will have a much better time in a terrarium instead of a dusty shelf
>This is edgy cringe
That's your opinion and I'll respect that
>Just use a fake human skull, edgelord
It's just not the same, you don't understand

Alright, so what should I do?

    OP here,

    I have excellent news, I'm in talks with someone who can promise me a skull, there's a bit of a language barrier, yet they will be able to properly send me a skull.

    I know there's a bump limit but I will make a new thread with the skull once it comes with updates.

        Sadly it's not, that particular skull that I was looking for is quite rare and I doubt I'll be able to find that again for a long time.

        Yet it is female so I'm happy with it

    OP, you should buy a shrunken head. They are crafted by some Ecuadorian tribes and since your tarantula is native to those lands, it would fit the aesthetic. Make the terrarium resemble an authentic small piece of Amazonia.

    R8 my skull.

    I don't think it's a good idea : a spider couldn't get hurt by it unless it fell on it but you won't be able to look at it if it's hidden inside and it will be hard to get it out unless the cranium has a latch to open it like mine.
    Also it will get dirty in a spider terrarium and I don't want to imagine the chore it would be to clean it.
    Finally, bones naturally attract tiny bugs, maybe some of those could be detrimental to the spider.

    Skulls have a bunch of sharp bits that I'd worry about a tarantula injuring itself on. There's also a good chance of it attracting pests like mites and flies. Pretty much everything about this is a bad idea.

        Now I have ideas for this skull, I want to decorate her with a cute bow with maybe a wig, I'll have the skull protected behind a glass case inside the tarantula terrarium

    Okay OP here,

    I have some bad news, I ordered a female chinese child skull which is perfectly legal in my country, I want to first say that. In the United States, no federal law prevents owning, buying, or selling human remains, unless the remains are Native American or in a few certain states, which I'm not one of them.

    Unfortunately, I've just learned that it's not legal for certain outside countries to do so. So US customs was forced to return the package to the sender AND contact the sender's authorities.

    I'm not in trouble but the seller will face some issues, the seller gave me a refund which was a miracle since I thought he would ghost and scam me.

    I'll have to find someone within the damn US or other countries that won't have US customs to reject the package.

    And before you guys say "The seller was some grave robber!" "He killed that girl and took her skull!", no the guy wasn't some shady person, he sold skulls in the past but he wasn't suppose to do it from his country and was warned in the past. I don't know what will happen to him but I wish him the best because he refunded me without any problems.

    I'll still continue my search though, I'm not ending this.

          a human being has to live to an age where they can consent on the use of their remains, die, and the situation of how their remains are used need to align to where their skull is somehow intact on an aftermarket. I don't understand why people are acting like 2,000 is an unreasonable price after all of that.

          I wouldn't pay it because I don't give a frick about having a skull, but if I were buying 2k does not sound unreasonable

      This. Assuming OP is getting one of those legal donor skulls. I honestly don't see what's wrong with using a real skull assuming it's voluntary or legal. With that said, I think skulls of any kind in a tarantula enclosure is an edgy meme that I think is overdone. Tarantulas don't kill humans or large animals. They are microscopic in the grand scale of nature and I prefer to keep them in naturalistic enclosures without any of the edgy shit. Just as they would be in the wild.

    Since you all are in such doubt that my tarantula wouldn't like a fake skull, I'll just come clean with my reasoning and experience that pushed me to this point.

    A few months ago I introduced a fake skull into my tarantula's enclosure and it stopped being as energetic and sociable around me. In fact, she started to visit my dreams and transform into beasts and stated her dissatisfaction with the skull. Something about energies being displaced.

    She not only demanded a real one or else she would poison my soul, but she also demanded my blood as a way to rebuild her energy. I had the fake one in there to hold me over but the visits are getting more and more frequent. That and my energy is getting lower and lower with every time she poisons me to the point I've had to take a few days off work already.

    Please shut the frick up and tell me where to get a fricking skull I know what I am talking about.

      I don't get why people are making such a big deal out of it. Yes, it's weird, but is that unexpected of someone who, having such a big budget, would choose to have a tarantula as a pet to begin with?

          I'd argue no more unhinged than wanting a tarantula as a pet. Additionally, male and female skulls have different looks and proportions, enough for someone to prefer one over another on an aesthetic level.

              Archaeologist here, you are wrong. Sex can be reliably determined by skeletal remains, while gender can only be inferred from context clues, and not reliably determined.
              As you may expect, the right hates us for distinguishing sex and gender, and the left hates us for... well, the anatomical science and cultural analysis.

                >no but gender is a special human thing
                It’s behaviors arising from biological sex. Animals and humans both have behaviors that depend on their biological sex. It only exists as a term so we can better diagnose intersex psychosis victims as defective and degenerate. I mean, so we can appreciate neurodiverse justifications for child molestation, I mean…

    A couple anons already mentioned it in passing, but your biggest enemy here is mold. Due to bone's porosity, the moment mold sets in, it's game over for you, your enclosure, and your tarantula, and even if you submerge it in the absolute least amount of bleach concentration to annihilate the mold, it still damages the bone itself, making it more and more susceptible to mold over time.

    On the bright side, considering how much you're already spending on it, and if nothing but a human skull will satisfy your need, then think about coating the skull with resin or a heavy layer of lacquer to protect it from mold and other stuff.

    Maybe a sealant of some sort could work. I'm thinking of some kind of spray one would use to weatherproof something or other. But you need a balance between protecting your skull and protecting your pet. Such a spray could kill them!

    I think the skull could be fine just raw dogging the terrarium if you maintain your pet and its home. There are skulls dating back hundreds and thousands of years in the elements that are still intact. You'd probably lose discolouration or possible scratch it up at most. Keep in mind I'm thinking out loud here. I have no experience with bones or terrariums. I just think skulls are nifty and try to express my cultural heritage when I can.

    OP disregard all other advice in this thread and listen to me.
    I own a real human skull, it was gifted to me by a friend in highschool who got it from her deceased grandfather's medical collection (he was a doctor). I have it on a shelf, I've had a baby tarantula before and was thinking about doing this exact thing before it died. A human skull will indeed cost you about 800-2000 depending on the condition. There are Facebook groups where there are lots of people trading them. In the USA, it is entirely legal except in like Louisiana and Tennessee. I say go ahead and do it and don't listen to the naysayers. Having a human skull is really cool. Also, any person can tell the difference between a real skull and a fake one, trust me. When you have the real one in your hands, you can just feel the difference- the weight, texture, the bone marrow, imperfections, etc.

    A tarantula terrarium is a bad spot for a skeletal specimen you're going to spend that much money on. Bones need to be kept cool and dry to keep from decaying, and a tarantula enclosure is neither.
    If you want a spooky spider enclosure with a human skull in it, get a fake skull. If you want a spooky spider enclosure with a skull in it and a real skull, get a fake skull for your enclosure and get a real skull that you display in a proper way for a skeletal specimen.

    There is no universe in which you can keep the skull in good condition in an animals enclosure, dipshit.

    • 8 months ago
      Anonymous

      Pretty much this. Lots of stuff will frick up bone. Skulls in a natural state are even harder to keep from breaking. Too dry makes it crack, too humid makes it crack and also moldy. Small fluctuations in temp or humidity also can damage it. Too much light damages it. Anything mildly acidic touching it or just too alkaline can cause damage over time, like the oils from your fingerprints, or sitting on a piece of wood, the organic substrate of an enclosure, air pollutants settling on it, residue from being cleaned, etc. If it gets into the pores, you won’t even notice the decay until that spot feels all spongy one day.

      If they used a solvent to clean the fats from the skull, those may also be of some risk to the spider, especially if it is something that’s still offgassing volatiles. In fact, that stuff will also damage the bone if the container it’s in doesn’t have enough ventilation.

              I found a female chinese child skull, it looks really fricking cool but it's worth 2k, it's in excellent condition though, this thing is beautiful. I think I'm just gonna buy this.

              Now I have ideas for this skull, I want to decorate her with a cute bow with maybe a wig, I'll have the skull protected behind a glass case inside the tarantula terrarium

                How is it bad if I label the human skull as a girl...when it's a female child?

                Also it would allow my spider to have a friend, since it'll be a she too.

                >Wants to have his spider crawl over it
                The spider won't crawl over it, since it'll be protected by a special case, it'll be like a shrine

                What's wrong with that? I'm going to have the shrine similar to this. Yet instead of a king crown, it'll be a princess crown. I think I'll replace the angels with something else too. I also have an idea where I have all of this stuff to glow in the dark too.

                You guys might think I'm some serial killer, yet I have standards when buying skulls. They're always ethically sourced with no shady stuff behind it.

                Now I could use Facebook and look for shady SEA sellers who are likely grave robbers or find murder/suicide victim skulls and sell them to foreigns for super cheap, yet I don't do that.

                How do you ethically source a child's skull? Had the same question for the guy who used a kid's spine for a bag, kids can't even have the choice to open a bank account, how do you get their consent for post burial practices? How ethical is the sourcing? What is the "ethics" in the sourcing? Did they get the kid's approval on her deathbed?

                You cannot. The most ethical way to do it is if you personally got written permission from the children's parents whom you met, in person, to gain that permission. Otherwise you might as well have just graverobbed it yourself since thats the likely origin.

                Yet you tried to do that anyways...

                Okay OP here,

                I have some bad news, I ordered a female chinese child skull which is perfectly legal in my country, I want to first say that. In the United States, no federal law prevents owning, buying, or selling human remains, unless the remains are Native American or in a few certain states, which I'm not one of them.

                Unfortunately, I've just learned that it's not legal for certain outside countries to do so. So US customs was forced to return the package to the sender AND contact the sender's authorities.

                I'm not in trouble but the seller will face some issues, the seller gave me a refund which was a miracle since I thought he would ghost and scam me.

                I'll have to find someone within the damn US or other countries that won't have US customs to reject the package.

                And before you guys say "The seller was some grave robber!" "He killed that girl and took her skull!", no the guy wasn't some shady person, he sold skulls in the past but he wasn't suppose to do it from his country and was warned in the past. I don't know what will happen to him but I wish him the best because he refunded me without any problems.

                I'll still continue my search though, I'm not ending this.

                First off, let's break some things down on why your skull is cheap

                -It's super old with a big ass hole near the cranium
                -Cut cranium
                -Missing teeth
                -Looks like it's been used from hell and back
                -It's not a child's skull

                A well-preserved uncut cranium child skull is quite rare, it's not a scam price

                >I'm sure the previous person won't care that much, it's not like I'm being malicious to the skull
                In many cultures including your own, this is considered desecration, a dick move

                I'm not desecrating anything with this skull, I'm being quite respectful

                >Plus I would keep the skull in a respectful manner where it would look really cool
                If you really respected the skull, you would have it gold plated and kept in a climate-controlled shrine. Anything short of that is frankly insulting

                >If you really respected the skull, you would have it gold-plated and kept in a climate-controlled shrine.

                I don't know about the gold-plated thing, I don't think it would look good, I still like the shrine idea though

                >So let me get this straight, it's fine if it's a male skull for his spider but female skulls can't be used???
                It's the fixation on a specific sex of the skull rather than the sex of the skull in itself

                Yes because the skull looks beautiful, female skulls look more unique than males, plus the rarity of a child skull makes it much more special

                I thought my reasons made sense but I'll go deeper into this.

                An actual real skull will give a much more natural and pleasing look to my spider terrarium, it'll have a realistic environment that will look super cool. If I use some fake plastic skull, it'll make the terrarium feel cheap and tacky. The spider won't likely use it for a home and feel that it's an inferior home to use.

                Saying that this is "pure edge" makes no sense, I'm not planning to use the skull for some satanic ritual.

                Playing devils advocate for op here but bone is possibly much better for an animal to inhabit than plastic.

                most animals don't live long enough to suffer any real side effects from exposure to plastics
                it's the kind of thing that needs to accumulate in the body for a while before it starts causing harm

                The average person isn't going to sit down and think, "Oh he must be lying! That's a real skull!" they'll just say "Man, that's a realistic skull" and continue their day

            if a moron would put my head in a box with tarantula and that I was a ghost, I would hurt this moron.
            but you are a edgy larping teenager or show skull + tarantula.

              This. I would also probably judge OP's terrarium making skills.
              If you don't have a fully bioactive setup using native species from the same area as that tarantula, you best bet that's a hauntin'.

              Dude, that ghost is going to fricking murder your tarantula, or maybe poltergeist it onto your dick while you're sleeping. Do fricking NOT get a real human skull.
              >durr i ain't scared of no ghosts
              >durr ghosts aren't real
              Famous last words.

              The fact that you care about the "authenticity" of it is some serial killer shit. It's a decoration in a pet tank.

              Okay instead of a tarantula then how about a cute jumping spider? It won't need much substrate and I'll be able to get it cool and dry. Plus I would keep the skull in a respectful manner where it would look really cool

              There is no universe in which you can keep the skull in good condition in an animals enclosure, dipshit.

              Pretty much this. Lots of stuff will frick up bone. Skulls in a natural state are even harder to keep from breaking. Too dry makes it crack, too humid makes it crack and also moldy. Small fluctuations in temp or humidity also can damage it. Too much light damages it. Anything mildly acidic touching it or just too alkaline can cause damage over time, like the oils from your fingerprints, or sitting on a piece of wood, the organic substrate of an enclosure, air pollutants settling on it, residue from being cleaned, etc. If it gets into the pores, you won’t even notice the decay until that spot feels all spongy one day.

              If they used a solvent to clean the fats from the skull, those may also be of some risk to the spider, especially if it is something that’s still offgassing volatiles. In fact, that stuff will also damage the bone if the container it’s in doesn’t have enough ventilation.

              Okay I'm starting to think about buying a fake skull now, if there's going to be too many issues with the skull being damaged from x y and z then it might not be worth it.

              I just hate that it won't be real, yet from all these suggestions, I can see why it might not work.

              Could you guys at least recommend the best realistic-looking skulls that won't look cheap or extremely fake?

                Buy a fake skull for the tarantula and buy the real skull just because you like it.

                If you really respected the skull, you would have it gold plated and kept in a climate-controlled shrine. Anything short of that is frankly insulting

            >"Anon, not only do you not contain any paperwork that shows you acquired these human remains through legal channels, but we also have it on record from multiple sources that you lied and told people that the human remains were fake. Care to explain why?"
            Really there's not a huge issue telling people it's fake, but if you don't have proof you acquired it legally AND you're lying to people, and you somehow get caught (which sometimes could be a completely unrelated situation, say the police get a warrant because you're being investigated for some random other crime and investigators find the human skull and can easily tell it's real, because recognizing and working with human remains is often part of their job), you're probably fricked.
            You could just do it all illegally, I don't care, but doing anything illegally carries a risk.

          This anon is right. There's a lot of red tape in most developed countries surrounding human remains. You could even get yourself into shit just through the purchase. Furthermore, this is going to be a display piece in a long-lived animal enclosure which will eventually be seen by someone other than yourself.

          Also for practical reasons, a model skull is going to be easier to clean and hold up better after years of tarantula shit, webs, tunnelling, substrate replacement, overgrowth etc. It's also not a potential legal time bomb nor will you be haunted

            Hmm, you make some great points with this, what if I have the skull surrounded by a glass case instead? Or instead of a tarantula, I could buy a jumping spider that could live inside the skull

            Why are people pretending like it's an issue to buy a real skull?
            https://www.boneroom.com/store/c45/Human_Skulls.html
            There's maybe three states where it's an issue.
            The problem is price. OP is going to spend ~2k bucks when they could spend about 100 because "it isn't the same".
            But if they have the money to waste, whatever.
            The only question for Wauf is if it will hurt the spider.

            Exactly, I know it's a lot of money but I really want a real human skull, I wish it was cheaper, I just feel like buying a fake skull is like buying a fake gold watch. What's the point?

              If you're in paris or near france you can just dip to the catacombs and get a free skull

              Motherfricker. You don't even have the spider or the enclosure at all. Jus get the skull and forget about the rest. There's no need to be an edgy snowflake about it.

              frick it, just buy the skull and put it in a glass case you freak. No spider required, and that's obviously all you really want anyways. You can even put a sign on it that says "FAKE SKULL, DEFINITELY NOT A REEL SKULL" to fool people

            I think a crystal skill would also look cooler, and less likely to make OP a social pariah and potentially wienerblock him inthe future.

          Buying and selling human remains (as long as they arent toxic i guess) isn't illegal, at least not where I'm from
          If you have a receipt that proves proof of purchase it's no big deal
