This is Corey (or McCormick), my beautiful new fox squirrel pelt.
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!
) 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.
