    I mount my first bat. I cleaned him like a bird put him in gass than dried and preserve with borax. How should I preserve his wings and feet? They are so thin and small it woud be difficult to inject them with formalin. Should I youst leave them to dry or should I preserve them somehow?

    Best regards

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Inject the wing bones and then card them like you do fish fins.

    Tobo, Thanks for adding your location to the personal info. It will be of help to those offering advice. I'm going to be in Moldova in August and am looking forward to being in that part of the world again.

    Slovenia is far from Moldova. We are italian neighbors.
