Quick question for ya's... While looking in the WASCO catalog I was wondering what the advantages and disadvantages of a form such as the Gene Smith forms that have the rear of the skull plate molded into the form.I'm thinking to myself that this has got to help those still learning Taxidermy and are having trouble with the ear placement. Any comments are appriciated and many thanks,

Lance, you are right. the pre-molded earbutt helps identify location and also requires less clay in the earbutts.
It allows you to cut the end of the skull off, removing the "problem" portion of the skull, the occipital ridge. That saves some cleaning time.
