    Nickie, I can see from the photograph that someone touched your otter on the back and messed up some fur. It wasn't me. LOL
     
  2. Another thumbs up for the Carter name.

    I love that base work. It's one of those mounts that sticks in your head forever.

    I touched it, I thought it was real and wanted to pet it.

    Those who know me, know that I absolutely love otters. One of these days, I'm going to move to a state where I'm allowed to have one as a pet! ...or a whole bunch of them as pets! :)
    The 2 photos below inspired me to create this mount...
    the beautiful blue colors in those icebergs are stunning.

    It's even more impressive in person. It lights up and the wooden base it sits on is beautiful. If I remember correctly, I think Nickie told me she only made about a 1 1/2 slit near the anus when skinning. Truely amazing! Nickie, if you ever come to CA, I'll take you and Rick to where there are some sea otters that you can get pretty close to and watch them play and swim for hours.
