    I did this just for laughs- a common snapper skull and tufted duck feet. This is an homage to chattery teeth. :)

    Awesome. Whatever happened to chattery teeth, do they still make them?

    Wonder if you could take apart a set of chattery teeth and make the mechanism work with this? Would be a fun thing to sell around Halloween.

    Thanks folks. The hubby has dried a surplus of duck feet here lately (I don't know why) ???, but this was the result. I'll run that past him, Sea Wolf- this one is glued up, but we can get plenty more snapper heads. I really like the way they turn out anyway.

    I'm getting really excited about something in the beetle tank! The paddlefish that got this all started is almost ready to come out! I don't know how in the world I'm going to get the larvae out of the bill though.
  9. Place the paddlefish on a wire rack above the beetle frass in your tank with something new for the beetles to eat below it. All of the live larvae and adults will quickly abandon the paddlefish. You will then only need to deal with any discarded skins or dead adults. Most of those may float out on their own during degreasing.

    Sorry this is a little off topic but I was wondering do you skin the paddle fish and turtle like any other skull or will the beeltle eat the skin. I hope to get a couple snapper heads when the season opens here. Thanks

    Alpinist- thanks, I'll try that. This is a trophy fish for a friend of mine.

    Hungry Bear- I didn't skin the fish, but I did try to get most of the skin and meat off the snapper. I'm just sort of winging it. :)
