Common Mallards - adult pair - Anas platyrhynchos - 64×33×14 cm - 2
2015 - Germany - non-CITES species

The wild duck is also referred to as mallard. The drake's nuptial plumage has a brown chest and a metallic green head with a white neck ring underneath. The beak is yellow. At the rear of the wings is a metallic blue, white-lined speculum. The black feathers at the tip of the tail are rolled up to sex feathers. The female has a brown-grey speckled colouring with blue speculum, whereby the animals are camouflaged well on land.

The size of the male is 46 x 33 x 14 cm, with wood 64 cm height. It weighs 2956 g, the female has the dimensions of 41 x 33 x 14 cm, with wood 62 cm height and weighs 1883 g.

The two preparations are each mounted on a tree trunk and can be attached to the wall with brackets. The animals come from Germany and have been stored in a smoking household for the last few years and therefore have a slightly brownish discolouration in places. Intensive ventilation reduces the smell of smoke.

As the total package will exceed 5 kg in weight, the postage costs outside the EU (see below) will be higher. The preparation is carefully packed for shipping, please be careful when pulling out the item.
