Looking for snakes mounted in lucite

Does anyone know where I could purchase snakes mounted in lucite? My son has the normal tarantula, scorpion, etc. and I know he would love to add a snake to that collection. I'd appreciate any information -- please e-mail to fcjn_5834@yahoo.com. Thank you.

Not in Lucite

Mounting arachnids and other exeoskeleton forms in Lucite or clear polyester or co-polymer resins is one thing. Mounting a snake would result in one pitiful looking reptile. I could encapsulate one of my finished replica reptiles with no problem, but since the smallest replica rattle snake I have in mold is 52 inches, that would be a big chunk of plastic. It would be possible to encapsulate a freeze-dried rattler, but I don't know of anyone doing that.
