Flesh-Eating Beetles Clean A Deer Skull In Wild Time-Lapse Video

I gotta plead ignorance on this one… I had no idea that this is a method for cleaning skulls.

I’m not in the taxidermy business, but I’ve heard of boiling and pressure washing, soaking in bleach, etc… but flesh-easting beetles? No idea that was a thing.

In this wild video, Greg Schoneck of Dakota Skulls walks you through the process of cleaning a skulls, using an air compressor to remove the brains (disgusting) and Dermestid Beetles to lick that bad boy clean.

Nature’s pressure washer.
