... this monstrosity is coming my way today, and I'm not ready for it .... Would love to preserve it down, but I simply don't have facilities for it. Anyone any experience making casts of animals? We'll try this first, latex, at HUGE expense, and then fillet it (in the process, do an autopsy; full parasite load examination, see what's in that belly, and look for any other apparent sign of distress/abnormality), then articulate the skeleton (HUGE cost). It seems like too great an opportunity to pass up. Anyone want to wing there way to NZ to help out this week?
