When most people think of Instagram, they think of looking at photos of their friends or favorite celebrities. But there is another side of the social media site that involves the selling and trading of human skulls — and it is a market that is thriving.
Skull enthusiasts across the world who are willing to spend thousands of dollars to get them don't have to go far - they just need Instagram, magazine reported.
The magazine spoke with Henry Scragg, one seller of the unusual remains who has amassed more than 34,000 followers on the platform. Scragg said he bought a box of skulls on eBay before the company banned the selling of human remains. He began sharing photos of the skulls on Instagram and was approached by many interest parties who wanted to buy them.
Debbie Reynders, another skull collector, said while most people might think the hobby is weird while most people who are in the trade are "open and lovely" people.
