    The title says it all! This what I've done in the last week after getting a few deer mounted each day. All the smaller snakes were don with carcass cast and Bondo. The Pygmy is 10" long! I mounted it this morning alone with the smaller copperhead and the coral snake. :)

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Perry, that's the biggest coral snake I think I've ever seen. How long is he. And the scarlet king ain't shabby.

    Oops! Sorry jeremy. We were thinking the same thing I guess.

    I don't know, mid 20's I guess and about as big around as your pinky finger.

    George, that's a Mexican milk snake! I thought it was a scarlet too, but they have a red snout instead of black. I would have been a world record scarlet kingsnake by several inches. :D

    Then I guess the other snakes are smaller than I'd assumed them to be. I was figuring the water moccasin was about 24.

    I believe

    I believe the Coral snake is an Eastern as they do get quite large.

    Where was it caught?

    Nice stuff Perry!

    :)

    Not a western, but a Texas coral snake. It was caught in south Texas. ;)

    Oops. Perry, I didn't even look at the tail of that little sucker. No wonder I thought the coral was bigger. Next time you get snakes from all over hell and creation why don't you give us dummies a program to go by.

    Beautiful mounts Perry. I recognized that Northern Pacific rattler right away. I've killed a few hundred of them out of my parents apple orchards in Washington State.
