mount separately

try skinning and mounting the tail separately using DP-- there's not anything to flesh in a squirrel tail, so don't split and just shove the tail in with some hide paste. groom and put up to attach later. The Breakthrough Mammal manual has a good illustrated step by step of the procedure.
Now if you could tell me how you keep the lips from falling apart i'd be most appreciative.
