The options for our official survey about what the most shocking find on “Storage Wars” included some truly strange collections and items. The options were a “My Little Pony” collection, a giant wooden head, a collection of rodent and lizard skeletons, Elvis collectibles, a breast augmentation device, and vintage dental equipment. After polling 608 United States residents, there was a very clear winner, having earned 24.84% of the vote — the collection of rodent, lizard, and bird skeletons that turned out to be illegal roadkill. The runner-ups, in order, were the breast augmentation device with 18.59% of the vote, the giant wooden head at 14.80%, Elvis collectibles at 14.64%, the vintage dental equipment at 13.82%, and finally the “My Little Pony” collection at 13.32%.
This set of skeletons was found during Season 11 by Darrell Sheets and his granddaughter Zoie, and it definitely isn’t the strangest thing he has ever found. Each skeleton was wrapped in bubble wrap, which shows that the previous owner treasured these animal remains on some level. Unfortunately for the Sheets, Darrell took the skeletons to be appraised and was told that he isn’t allowed to sell them because they are illegal roadkill. According to Redding, it was illegal to collect roadkill in the state of California before 2020, and even after that point, one needs a permit in order to do so, but only for large game animals like deer. This means that rodent and lizard carcasses are still illegal to pick up even today, so Darrell’s skeletal find was absolutely worthless. Fortunately, it still provided a fair amount of entertainment value — at least according to our exclusive survey.
