Underneath a 1st floor balcony in my apartment complex, there's been this dead squirrel. I've been told it was there since this summer. And I walked past it every day, and I really, REALLY wanted it! I would much rather be around live animals then dead ones, and I personally would not be ok with purposefully killing an animal to have some part of it.
But I can't pass up this little guy, I mean, wait till you see the photos. The tail is so adorably neat.
So yesterday, I got me some gloves and swiped a plastic target bag from my roommate and I acquired the squirrel! Now, I just really want the skeleton, which seems to be all... well connected with the exception of a little paw, which is kind of dangly.
I've been looking at tutorials online on how to clean it, but I'm not sure how to clean it form this particular stage, I don't want to damage him, because the little bones are all so fragile!
SO I was wondering if I could have some advice!!! I just want the skeleton and I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty. As long as I can be wearing gloves, heh.
