Why yes,, i have on occasion mounted something odd- like a baboon riding a wart hog dressed in a little cowboys outfit,, or a two headed quail.;^) Also did a baboon standing that was holding a tiolet paper roll. Glad you all enjoy the thread- i worked on a tiny specimen until 12:30 this morn--a poorwill . Twas a tiny potato chip- and required my secret rehydration techniques to bring the skin back to something workable..Micro surgery and micro "boids" make for a fun evening!

Gorgeous work, Ron!! We at TINS will be very proud to use these for education and outreach!!

EDIT - And sorry about the dehydrated skin - we try, but sometimes specimens come to us that have just been chucked in the freezer with no protection. I always recommend a paper cone and double freezer bags - seems to do the trick for birds I'm going to make into study skins.

Glad ya like em Will! Happy to help out the Institute and the good work You do!


Interesting about the white headed being a victim of the angora fire too!

I was thinking that pecker was do for a molt when looking at the white head- and tiny dark and grey stained feathers which didnt wash out with dawn dishwashing sop. I thought it to be natural,, then upon conversing with Will was told she was an angora fire victim lol! Smoked she was !

A man can be an artist with anything. Food, whatever. Creasey's art is death, and he's about to paint his masterpiece.

My daughter is intensely interested in taxidermy. I wouldn't be surprised to find out it is her calling in life. She is very passionate about it.

She says your stuff is awesome!
