    I would love to see some pics as well. I am very interested in reptile reproductions, unfortuantely i just dont know the methods. But i love looking at others work. Hope to see some great mounts.

    Here is a snapping turtle I did he is not done yet but here he is. I made a fake head and wrapped the tail legs and neck and used a lot of clay to make the wrinkles just right.

    Awesome work to all the above posters. Here is a fly river turtle reproduction i finished up recently. It turned out okay overall.

    I also have been working on this leopard frog reproduction. It is coming along, although i didn't get the spots on the frog to look quite right. I am going to add artificial water to the scene as soon as the base dries thoroughly.

    Here is a picture of the leopard frog i just got done with on a morgan replica. The spots arent right, but until i get a detail airbrush and/or become more experienced, its the best i could get.

    I also tried a morgan juvenil box turtle replica. Didn't turn out with as defined of markings as i wanted, but on a bigger box turtle i think i can do better.

    Hey Brian,

    I really appreciate that man. Its nothing compared to what you guys could produce on such a project, but im trying. The morgan reptiles are really cool to paint. I really am looking forward to trying one of the spiny softshell trutle replicas, but ive got to save up. That thing is stinkin expensive. But anyway, i appreciate the compliment. It means alot coming from an experienced taxidermist.

    Take care,
    Chris
