I found a big snake dead in the raod and thought it might look pretty cool If I had it stuffed and mounted. I want to send it home in the mail because my folks know where to get it stuffed. WHat should I do to it to keep it from getting nasty. I thought maybe I could gut it and bleed it, wash it then freeze it and send it home in a cooler packed with dry ice. Ive never cut into a snake before. Need advice.
Should I just leave it alone and freeze it whole?
Thanks,
Dave

For now...leave it alone and freeze it whole!

Make sure you wrap it with newspaper and then bag it with a plastic bag and freezer as soon as possible
