Well I've been interested in taxidermy for a long time now and have even skinned a couple snakes I've found already dead. I've been wanting to try something different for a while and now I have a chance. My dog killed a rabbit today and I'd like to have a go at just skinning and preserving the fur, no mounting. There it a small tear in the hind leg and back of the neck form my dog and a quarter sized patch where the fur was torn out. Where should I start? How hard is it to get the skin from the paws and head? I have it in the freezer right now, what chemicals or solutions do I need? I'd also like to do something with the skeleton, probably just the skull. I don't have any of those cool little flesh eating bugs, so what else can I do to the skull? Thanks for all you help and if you have any tips that I didn't ask please, fill me in.
