Has anyone got pictures of a gray squirrel's mouth?

    I found a really nice looking gray squirrel today. It was a roadkill, but it was fresh (still warm) and had really pretty markings. Its has a gray head, tail and legs, but it's back and sides are kind of a reddish orange. Never seen one with so much red before, and I'm planning on mounting it. Problem is, on all the squirrels I've done, I always screw up on the mouth even if the rest of it is perfect. I can't use the squirrel I've got as reference, because the head is slightly mishapen due to the car that ran over it.

    Has anyone got detailed pictures of a gray squirrel's mouth? I'm going to do a closed-mouth mount.

    They're expensive, but John Belluci's photo sets from WASCO are the best squirrel reference i have ever seen.

    Well, now I do. When I first made this post (way back in 2006!) I didn't know how to split the lips very well. But I've since figured it out and my squirrels' mouths look fine now. And I was surprised to see that this post still existed!
