flat mounting of a large snake skin

Submitted by Kristin on 3/31/06 at 7:13 PM. ( pictfrmr@cfl.rr.com )

I am a picture framer and have a customer who would like me to shadow box frame a snake skin under glass. It measures 104" in length and is 10" at the widest section. He would like the skin to be mounted as flat as possible. When stretched out the skin has a curl to it and does not lay flat. Is there an adhesive I can use or is it better to pin it in place?
All suggestions will be greatly appreciated!
