Preparing An Animal For Freeze Drying

Discussion in 'Beginners' started by Siphonophore, May 27, 2023.

  1. I have a pet slider turtle that just passed away and I want to freeze dry him someday soon. I heard that I would have to prepare the animal a certain way before it goes in the freeze dryer or else it won't look that great. What is the exact process? There's not that much info about it out there, any advice would be appreciated.

    The information you are requesting is mostly proprietary. Freeze the turtle and find a reputable freeze-dry company. Ship the turtle to them with instructions on the desired pose

    Exactly call up bears den on Pennsylvania and ask him for instructions.
