Skinning a Raccoon Foot for Taxidermy

Skinning a roadkill raccoon’s toes for taxidermy can be difficult – certainly moreso than skinning the paws of other critters. So here is a trick I’ve learned for making things a bit easier! Pardon the focus problems – my volunteer has never shot with my camera before and didn’t know that it is entirely manual.

    Would it be impossible to skin an animal for taxidermy and keep all of the bones for skeleton articulation? The last phalanxes in the phalanges end up staying in the foot right? Because claws are attached to bone.

    Do you use a preservative on the ends of the toes?

    Hello NaturePunk! If you see this, please respond if you can. 🙂  I know there are several different ways of taxidermy, as I've noticed people do this in all different sorts of ways. But the way your creations come out are just flawless, beautiful. The skin looks so soft and not firm or tough or anything. And I was wondering, if you don't mind, telling me which out of the many methods you use, and what to/not to look for in your roadkill?
