    Same as the RF leg. Alter away the forms position of the legs shouldn't matter if your changing it anyway as long as its anatomically correct change. Good luck

    With that position the racoon could be laying on that back leg an the foot could show on the show side a little, or it could be straight back behind it or bent and on the back side of the animal. If you move it within the ability and rotation of the hip and knee joints it's your call.

    You will need to carve a trench in the belly for the leg to be positioned with the RR foot showing on the show side. I've done scads of bobcats using similar mannikins.
