need to preserve a dead snake

Submitted by Elaine on 10/22/04 at 9:06 PM. ( BeeGoddess@comast.net ) 69.244.52.37

I found a small rattlesnake, about a foot long, drowned in my pool skimmer... I was really bummed.... It is intact and I would like to preserve it...... I was hoping it wouldn't have to be gutted... ick ... Can it just be buried in borax for a time... and how long? Are there other methods? Until I have the answer I am keeping it in water.... I don;t know how long it was in the skimmer... I don;t want it to rot... Please help ASAP! Thanks! Feel free to email me as well!

(looks like a comma after the @/shouldn't be there)

Freeze it IN the water or by itself... in a baggie ... in foil... in a container?

Thank you so much!


what next?
