    So a good friend of mine gave me a couple snakes and for some reason I wanted to try mounting this one in particular, maybe because it was relatively long and colorful.

    This is the first snake I've ever mounted. The entire process was entirely experimental for me.

    Here's the pictures of what I did.

    Posed it.
