    Here's my current work-in-progress...A baby possum! He was so tiny I had to carve a form for him and make the legs out of clay. I'm going to put some kind of bug on the leaf he's sniffing. I know there's a lot of pins in his mouth, but I had trouble tucking those lips into the styrofoam. So I figured I'd go the safe rout and pin them all the way to keep the lip line straight as it dries.

    How I aquired this little guy is kind of funny, I was working in the garage last week sometime and one of our neighbors called and said to look on the front doorstep. I looked, and saw they had left a grocery bag there with the little dead possum in it! Isn't it nice when your neighbors leave you "gifts"? ;D

    I don't get to do too many small mammals, but it is a nice change of pace to work on some.
