    I have a porcupine to do from Africa. What type of tan would you use a submerge tan or rub on. I have been using Pro-1 products, but am open to to what would work best. I have a idea on what I am going to do, but would like to get some more input. This is a personal animal ,am i am not a newbe, been doing this for 44 years, but i have not tanned any African, and the taxidermist in Africa who did the dip and pack said they are very difficult to handle. Any info would be much appreciated.

    Ill agree on their difficult as many have said and watched them fall right apart. Don't tempt this at home send it out. That's the best advice you can get and hope it works out.
    One or a few reason why it grease and the skin being airdried if not to a crisp.
