Here's a tree armature for an anaconda exhibit at the buffalo zoo, just finished most of the fiberglass work tonight. I'm pooped! Armature is mesh, pvc, fiberglass. I've got 4 days into it so far. Next week I'll be doing the finish texture. I'll post some more pics later on.<center>

Dang Mike,

You make it hard for me to decide which I like better; your habitat or your birds!!  Can't wait to see this tree take shape :)
