I finally have mounted one after years of toying with the idea and lurking on the reptile site. He is a 29" Northern Pacific that I carved a form for. Here is the form after alterations with taking the advice of Jim B and Tom. And here he is, he is fresh and I still have some small detail work on the pits, eyes and skin. He will go into a habitat that will match his curvature so don't ding me hard on the lack of flat underside in regards to the countertop. BYTW the wife was at work when I took the pics so don't tell her the snake was on the counter ;D I'm not extremely happy with the eye color but I could not find a 4mm eye that was darker, this eye was a western diamond back. any body know where I may find 4mm eyes for snakes that may be a bit darker??? Our little Nps will not except 5 mm. Ill have a Gopher snake posted soon, and Ive already cast a small 24" Np and have him tanned and ready so that will be coming soon also. So let me have guys, I have thick skin and I want to learn from your critiques. Thanks and have a good one.
