    i got a squirrel mounted standing on her hind feet. I don’t care for the position of the front feet, they seem extended too far out for my liking. My question is, can I bend them in so they look more natural without damaging the mount?
    Thanks

    You will break them off if not re-hydrated. Cover them with a damp rag for 24 hours, and see if they will move, if not, allow another 24 til they are free. Keep the rag moist by initially soaking in water and wringing out, then mist with water several times daily to keep it moist. Covering it with plastic will aid in holding moisture.
