Sorry to bother you two again but I had one last question:

Is it okay to freeze these skins for mounting later? Like I said I'm trying to get the "whole" snakes out of the freezer so I am skinning them and then will mount when I can. The process that I'm using after the skinning is just borax during and after the fleshing process, then I am lightly misting the skins and putting them in a freezer zip lock bag folded and placed back in the freezer.

Thanks
Asher

It is Ok to freeze them in a plaSTIC BAG, but to defrost them, take them out of the bag and wrap in papertowels or a cloth bag to wick the moisture away from the skin as they thaw
