    Hello. I am new to this taxidermy thing. But I have a ball python that died a while back and would love to turn her into something I can keep forever. I wanted to clean the bones, then articulate her back together. I'm not not sure how to do that. So my question is. What would be the best method to clean the bones, with out beetles, and also make it easy to articulate them back together?

    Search this site for bone articulation. Many methods will work including beetles, maceration and boiling. You have to be really careful with those delicate bones. A snake is really difficult to articulate if you don't keep track of where the bones belong. they are all so similar.
