Hello, all! I am absolutely new to this site, so please forgive me for any format or formality errors I may make, and please call me out if needed. Edited to mention: IT IS AN EASTERN COTTONTAIL! I recently found a juvenile rabbit on the side of the road, unmistakably hit by a vehicle. The head wasn't damaged, and I intend to clean the skull (I put it in a container with flies so the larvae will eat up the tissue - I have one juvenile rabbit skull from a few months prior). I decided to remove the ears and try to dry preserve them. The thing I've come across the most is "turning" the ears, but I can't find explicit instructions on how to do so. They are still full of all their flesh, I literally cut around the base of the ear with an Exact-O knife (closest I have to a scalpel) and have the both of them in a sealed container outside (my mother won't let me bring anything death-related inside ) which is collecting condensation, which I don't know if that's bad. How do I go about this, from the start (well, starting with the ears already being cut off). Is there a way to just flip them inside out and then just cut off all the meat and then peel off the cartilage? (for removing the cartilage itself, I found a neat tutorial on this site - which is why I joined) Should I hollow them out/remove the fleshy bits while they're still the right-side out? Please help!
