    Dear Sir/Madam,

    Good day, Our company operates Real Human Skull & Skeleton Collection
    and our founder ,y late father is of late and now we are offering an
    extensive selection of real and replica human skulls and skeletons.
    Real human skulls and skeletons are only obtained from legal and
    ethical sources, however, these specimens are becoming more difficult
    to find.

    Our Real Skull enterprise is proud to offer Research Quality Natural
    Bone Human Skulls. Every specimen is meticulously prepared in our
    laboratories with great care and dignity. This attention to detail
    results in the highest quality human skulls available for medical
    research and educational needs. Each specimen, if requested, is
    provided with known age, gender, and race.

    Due to the increasingly difficult availability of real human skulls,
    skeletons and bones, Real Skull enterprise inventory changes daily. It
    is for this reason that all natural human skull bones and skeletons
    are now being listed as a one-of-a-kind item. New items will be listed
    below as they become available.

    Thank you,
    Dr Ferrel Santos
