    Hey folks were gonna start a Reptile thread for you to post all your reptile mounts to display your handy work on them cold blooded buggers... :eek: I think this is the only category that has not started a display thread... so be it snakes, lizards, gators or turtles ....LETS SEE EM. We will do it by year rather then monthly or weekly due to not as many being posted as other animal types which will minimize work load or maintenance. Feel free to post a new picture of your finished or unfinished specimen and understand that unless asked for a critique this should stay a critique free thread. Ill see if I can get it pinned up on top so we dont have to search for it.

    Nice Perry, I really love the Blacktail though. Hey where you finding them bases?

    I'm making them out of plywood, green floral foam and Elmer's glue mixed with dirt for the canebrake or Krylon rock spray for the others. The rock ones are a little bland, but desert items can easily be inserted into them. You don't find to many desert items at our floral stores! :D
     
  19. Here is a Patternless western diamondback I did a few months ago
     
  20. Here is a little trio from earlier in the year. One is a cuban crocodile galloping pose, a 5 foot cuban iguana, and a beautifull leopard tortoise. They were all in the photo so I thought I would identify them
