I just had to post this...

Don't ask what I was looking for, but I stumbled upon this on eBay and it made me chuckle.

I have inherited a coat made out of Ocelot and I can't sell it legally, I'm assuming a stuffed one would be subject to the same laws!

Tempting though that is, I must say that I prefer to see Ocelot coats on their rightful owners...

I think it depends on the age, Something to do with CITES. If you can be sure it was made/stuffed before the 1920's (I think) you can sell it, (like ivory, turtle shell etc etc)
