I recieved a 5.5m rock python and 7 ft black mamba skin today. I have been through the search proces.
We do not have the combo sets that you guys have in the states.
I use Lutan F as my taning agent.
Any sugestions.
Cheers.

While you may not have it where you are, I am sure Bruce would send you some. mambas are like any smooth skinned snak as they will shed another layer of skins as they dry like pythons. After you pickle them, you will have to remove all the scales before you go to the oiling proces. The rock python is notorious for having tough to remove scales. You got your work cut out for ya
