    Another Ferret

    Just finished my second ferret, apparently this one killed a few kiwis that were being monitored before he was caught in a cage trap, which is why they wanted the mouth open.

    It's going to be used as part of a conservation display.

    Ugly looking little fuck. I am talking about the ferret Dundee not you. Although if the cap fits ........
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    I take it you did this yourself. If that is the case I may have a few questions about taxidermy as I may (hopefully) be looking at getting some done in April. In particular, what I should and should not do to preserve the animal I want to get done. Its a one shot deal as I probably wont have a reason to get another one done.

    If you are doing a long trip in you will need to learn how to skin the face out then flesh and salt it because the hair will fall out if it starts to rot. Other wise just put the head and skin in the freezer as soon as possible and then take it to the taxidermist frozen.
    This video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oidPPLsH_rg shows the skinning process pretty well, although you don't need to cut the skin at the back of the legs like he did.
