If you need the ultimate version of the pike eye for taxidermy, we've got something you might be interested in. Our Pike 6 eye was developed with leading taxidermists and can be suitable for competition and commercial mounts. Having a realistic drop-shaped pupil with somewhat uneven edge, and a speckled iris that has light-brown, golden and olive shades in it, this eye is true in shape, size and coloration. Our eyes are made from polymer materials (similar to acrylic). We use our own patented technology that gives them hardness, chemical stability, and heat resistance. The eyes can be dry-cleaned, treated with most organic solvents, and heated to 130 degrees Celsius (about 260 degrees Fahrenheit) for 20 minutes. The iris and pupil are digitally printed, which allows us to create very complex images. The image is refracted by the strong lens in a special way, creating the unique effect of a real eye. On the back side of the eye, there is a ribbed plastic peg that helps position and set the eye on a mold. It can be removed if not needed.
