    For anyone coming to the Nationals in a few weeks, a personal friend of mine, Benny Ippolito, protege to the great Louis Paul Jonas, will be there showing his newly modeled wildlife bronzes. Benny has wrapped in excelsior every animal from dik-diks to full grown jaguars. His technique is flawless and as accurate as any commercial form on the market today. In fact, I once picked up a mountain lion Benny wrapped by the tail and it never even sagged a 1/8" in any direction. Benny will be there with Bob Chauvin, contributing columnist to Breakthrough magazine. Bob also has the distinction of having worked with Louis Paul and has wrapped his fair share of bears, African and north American large and small game. Benny and Bob are not giving seminars but are willing to share there knowledge with anyone at the show. So please bring your note books. You can see some of Benny's art work by logging on to his web site http://www.ippolitostudio.com/about.htm
    So to answer your question, no animal on earth is beyond mounting by the wrapped excelsior method.
