    (Really sorry for putting "Urgent" in the title, but I've just found a dead animal and I know absolutely nothing about taxidermy, and I can't do any research right now because I'm preparing to leave the house very soon and I'll have to be on the road the whole night and will only come back tomorrow night... So I'd really appreciate if someone could help me quickly! :))


    I've just found a dead marmoset (a monkey the size of a squirrel) on the road and I would really like to make sure it's preserved as soon as possible so I can later learn how to stuff it. What should I do?

    It looks fresh and doesn't smell, but its muscles are rigid and there were ants on its head.

    For now, I think I'll stick it in a bunch of plastic bags and then in a frost-free freezer, which is all I have for now.

    Thanks a lot in advance!
