A friend of mine has a South American bird-shaped ocarina, about the size of a pigeon (i.e. a bass). It's actually a double ocarina, but for two players - one blows in the beak and the other into the tail.

Here's another one. It's a triple ocarina and called a Huaca.

Someone should open a museum with these ocarinas - The Museum of Horror Ocarinas. :)

The weirdest ocarina in my collection is certainly a Mexican triple ocarina in the shape of a snake, with a head of a god or king attached in the middle of it.

I own (for the moment) a weirdo ocarina, but I won't post pictures (you know why : phallic shaped ocarina, it's not really great to show xD)

Awww, want the whale ocarina *-*

I've often toyed with the idea of purchasing the ocarina shaped like a handgun.

That gun ocarina is odd looking to me. Looks like it only has two holes? And no fipple? Unless that and the rest of the wholes are all on the bottom side?

The Woodsound looks a bit like a map of Australia where you blow into Cape York. There's an opportunity for somebody.

Chileans who want an ocarina the shape of their country will be out of luck though.

Gun cases can be good for storing ocarinas. Bet that would freak some people out.

How do these weird ocarinas sound? I am not an ocarina maker, but I thought they needed a certain shape to sound good?

@SuperBob I would be nervous to play that thing! It looks awkward and I might drop it. Very sculptural and looks like lots of time went into it!
@Jack lol!

I would want it more for collecting rather than playing. I'd rather play a four hole than i five anyway cause i haven't seen many five hole tabs so it would just be an extra hole to cover when playing four hole songs. But I guess it would be okay when I switch to actual sheet music.

I love this topic. Thanks for posting all the pictures of the unique ocarinas. The dragon shaped ones looked really cool but there is no way I would ever consider buying the scary chicken head ocarina. <shudder!>
