Taxidermy Project

A good friend gave me a red fox about a month ago and I just now finished tanning it!

Nice pictures, Stephen. Dad shot a raccoon a few weeks ago, and I am currently in the process of letting it rot and decay so I can salvage the bones for my manly library...I need to put it on an ant bed so they can help me. Ideally, I would glue the bones together somehow to give it a fierce predatorial stance.

That sounds interesting. I'd love to know how it turns out!

Actually it's easier than it looks.
No, I'm not taking orders unless my inventory increases, which is not likely!

I like it. Give me thirty years to get out of school, and I might want to learn. : )

Reminds me of a a friend (now a veterinarian) who used to tell me excitedly about the road kill he would find. "It was still warm," he used to say with excitement.

He was also into taxidermy.
