Hey Dusty; Get yourself the issue 20 of Breakthrough Magazine and the 2004 May/June issue of Taxidermy Today and get froggy with it;jump all over it.

Dont paint it like most are!

Please dont paint the nose black and the inside of the mouth pink!
They are very much cream color inside and on the lips. The nose can start with that same cream color and then darkened, top to bottom with a light brown. Keep the nostrils cream.
