Fox Squirrel Pelt - Corey by FossilFeather Fox Squirrel Pelt - Corey by FossilFeather
This is Corey (or McCormick), my beautiful new fox squirrel pelt. :love: He was found as roadkill and skinned and tanned by me. I skinned him with all of his paws and claws intact which gives him so much more personality (just look at that pose in this picture! :D) than my other two tanned squirrel pelts who are sadly lacking their feetses. :(

A big thank you goes out to ~lirimakat whose patience with my bizarre interests and continued antics made Corey's "second life" possible. :)

More pictures of Corey will be posted once I've made a couple small repairs to his tail. :aww:

For paw size comparison, see here: [link]

YES! Finally. Road kill finally gets to be cleaned up and live a "new" life. I always wanted to do this, but my mom would kill me. lol
Now with red foxes making a comeback on long island, I see them a lot! and the are just going to waste laying there...

BTW beautiful colors on your fox squirrel :)

awesome, we have them as such suicidal things here, and rabbits, coons, skunks, possums.
they are neat little buggers to skin.

Those are basically the same critters I regularly see as roadkill too. Good luck with that skeleton!
