Animal Heads

Secondary to animals as food we have mounted heads, the following are a few I have been thinking about. Reptile, Bird, Aquatic mammal, flying mammal.
The ghost bat and boyd's dragon are endemic to Australia, while the spoonbill can also be found in NZ, PNG and Tonga. The Dugong's conservation status is vulnerable and although it has a large range in Indo-Pacific waters, Australia has the largest population with groups of around 10,000.

Mounted heads:
Boyd's Forest Dragon (Hypsilurus boydii) From Tropical Queensland
Royal Spoonbill (Platalea regia)
Dugong (Dugong dugon)moreton bay, shark bay largest population.
Ghost Bat (Macroderma gigas)
