Ben - It is best to ask a few more questions about that squirrel. Was the membrane removed completely from it before it was pickled and tanned? The reason I ask is because I've had other people try tanning them before without removing it first. Its that cellophane like layer next to the flesh. All skins have it - even squirrels. Usually, most taxidermists will either beam it off or I like to use a wire brush to do it. If it isnt removed, the skins will turn out stiff and cardboardy. If its removed - they usually tan beautifully and are soft and stretchy.
