  1. Thought these might be helpful.
    One gives your a really nice look at the musculature around the eye.



  2. Someone Should tell that guy he's got too many wrinkles on his mount..

    That really IS good reference. The skin looks like post hibernation. I've seen bears with a lot of hair missing at that stage but nothing like this. If I recall, it's caused by "den mites" that do what dermistids do to mounts. I'm told the hair grows back. Do you know where the pictures came from Rhasputin?
