I'm making them out of plywood, green floral foam and Elmer's glue mixed with dirt for the canebrake or Krylon rock spray for the others. The rock ones are a little bland, but desert items can easily be inserted into them. You don't find to many desert items at our floral stores! :D

Here is a little trio from earlier in the year. One is a cuban crocodile galloping pose, a 5 foot cuban iguana, and a beautifull leopard tortoise. They were all in the photo so I thought I would identify them

Tom, are those skin mounts?  Reproductions?

Here is a Cuban Rock Iguana reproduction that I made recently (only a 3 footer).

I still got the bad boy in the freezer to use for a skin mount.

Yes I molded it in one piece using Innovative Polymer GI 1100 silicone and then used Innovative Polymer IE 3030 to pour it.

That's one of the best paint jobs on a ball python I've ever seen !

Yes, those were skin mounts from the 1990's...a California Kingsnake attacking a Speckled Rattlesnake.
