Shark Question

Submitted by Bazie Dulen on 12/30/05 at 1:28 AM. ( bdueln@mrtc.com ) 208.135.164.47

I recently completed a replica of about a 22" hammerhead shark for a customer. I have the actual shark still. The customer is wanting to know if I can save the jaw and teeth for him.(Albeit, they are very small!) Is this possible or am I going to cut this out(If it's even possible) just for them to distingrate later?
Just didn't know if they could be saved. I told him this also and told him I would get back ot him on it.
Any help and advice is appreciated.
Thanks,
Bazie

will come off the jaw very easily. I recieved one last summer to be cleaned up by my beetles. I did not rehydrate it, for fear that it would come all to pieces. It took a while, but the bugs eventually cleaned it up enough to satisfy the customer. This jawset was about 5" wide by 12" long when they were opened all the way. I wish I had taken a photo of them...but I didn't.
