A skeleton stands guard outside of this cavelike spot, suggesting that a jaunt here is not for the faint of heart. It’s true: The taxidermied animal heads and skeletal jaws lining the walls provide a frightening sight. Also check out the slightly creepy collectibles including replica skulls of wolves, hyenas and lions ($90–$395); bracelets crafted out of genuine beetles ($39); and man-eating piranha figurines ($35). But beyond freaky stuff, the natural selection can also include gorgeous curios, like displays of blue morpho butterflies ($39), and eye-popping rock formations, including malachite from Zaire, silver pyrite from Peru, 500-million-year-old ocean jasper from Madagascar and yellow sulfur crystal from Bolivia.
