    I have a rattlesnake that I'm going to mount, but I would also like to keep its skull. Any suggestion on how to flesh it? I've heard that the bones are too soft to boil and they just boil away.

    Just beware of the fangs the residue on them can really hurt if you scratch your self by accident, I found out the hard way when I was a kid and found a dead one. :'(

    Lesson learned

    The only way to clean it the right way as well as the skeleton is to use beetles. If you don't have a colony, then send it out to be done for you. Any other method WILL ruin it.
