    That may be taxidermied and not freeze-dried.
    Halfway off-topic, that's one of the better anthro squirrels I've seen. Nothing's bent too horribly out of place, at least.

  3. I have done some novelty poses but not quite like that. Whenever they are stretched out they take up more dryer room and I do charge a little more but not a whole lot unless its something like a squirrel with the tail extended which takes quite a bit of space.

    It's not taxidermy I only do freeze drying. I Was going to do one with a fishing pole maybe or sitting on a bike. I think the general public would buy them.

    Ah, it's your work? Good job! Usually those things have the joints bent all out of place and just look weird, but this looks fairly natural.

    What do you charge to make one of those? I think I want one for my desk!

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    I'm not much into "novelty" mounts, but I have to say that's an incredibly good job. Like Jersey Jays, I wouldn't think twice about having one of those for myself.

    (Just a note, however. Many times people show us pictures of their better work that can't be duplicated. I'd want one EXACTLY like this one, including the posture.)

    Thanks George, that mount will be ready in about 7 weeks. I believe anyone can freeze dry but some not so well. I guess that's why when I retired from the Fire Dept I payed a lot of money to take classes for this from one of the best freeze dry guys in the business, which saved me some years of frustration. Wiring the animal is key it's very easy to distort the joints to much. Prices go to my website http\\Allcrittersandpetsfreezedry.com
  11. I agree, there is a lot more to it than set it and forget it. From adjusting the temp, to prep work, and on and on. Its not too difficult but you should have and understanding of how it works, why it works, what can happen wrong then you can use what you know about the process to avoid those things happening. Just like boiling skulls, all it takes is a few bad eggs to give the whole group a bad name.
