Here is another Stop Rot Krow tan story. I applied Stop Rot to the ears of a bobcat. I skinned it and turned lips and eyes but forgot to turn and split the ears. Anyhow I put it in the Krow Tan and forgot about it until it was due to come out. Well I noticed the ears were not turned and thought UH OH!. Anyhow I went ahead and turned the ears figuring I would lose all the hair on the ears. But to my surprise It did not slip one little bit. I am not sure if it was due to Stop Rot or the Krow Tan or both. Anyhow it worked great there as well as every other time I used it.

I would have never thought not to turn the ears........LOL!
I can't razz you too much, this is the same guy that forgets and leaves his mug under the coffee maker.....and forgets to upload a new homepage.
That's actually a pretty good lead. I have been going the other direction with what I have been working on of late, thermal freezing versus chemically generated heat.
I did a fair amount of digging around in the area of those exothermal reactions you read so much about when I started the STOP-ROT project.
There are photos of heat energy damaged hair on TaxidermyReference.com that show this.
Here's a couple of links, if you haven't already seen these pages. The one is the page I forgot to upload a new homepage for:
We will all have to go to Stockholm together when we receive the Nobel Taxidermy Prize.
