    I really enjoy this habitat thread, so decided to start up a new one for the month. Love the different ideas and techniques. Hopefully everyone will contribute and keep it going. Here's one that left yesterday.

    Old rock.....

    I have a friend that had a couple of old, fake Home Depot rocks in his drive way. One day he ran one over......so he gave it to me. So for this gaboon viper mount (50 x 12) I built the support with 2x4s then I started to cut up his fake rock and assembled it to fit the pose of the snake. I finished the cracks just like I do with Quik Rock (sheet rock, paper insulation, vermiculite, water mix), and then painted it.

    :)

    Very nice on the speed goat, however, I'd loose the skull and horns, IMO, that ruins the whole thing.

    Nice Jerry! I've got a couple different mountain lions to do and both need to be in trees. Been thinking of building trees. I have access to juniper but you sure have to look at alot of it to find the "right" one.

    Little Mexico Coues. The rock is Dale Manning's habitat rock. Kerby Ross' cactus pad.
