Hello there, all!

So, have you heard of the 20% project? Usually it takes place in the work force. A worker is asked to commit 20% of their time (usually one work day) to their own personal project, provided that it benefits the company in some way. In my Lang class, we're doing just that, only it's to benefit the community.

I decided, for several reasons, that I wanted to write a book based on taxidermy and veterinary related sciences. One of the things I want to do is include photographs of different pelts, bones, structures, etc. I'm even working towards getting a cat from a biological lab and doing a step-by-step dissection and displaying all of the different systems.

I asked a lot of people at my school to contribute any way that they could by donating dead animals, but seeing as I don't know where a lot of you live, I want to ask you something a little bit different. Would any of you be willing to let me borrow some of your pieces for photographs? I know it may seem sketchy to send them away, but we can work out a system of some sort. It would only be for about a week. It would not only mean the world to me, but you would be credited with each and every picture. If you have information you'd like to send along with it, I'll directly quote your words.

This book would be an amazing reference guide to any taxidermist, animal enthusiast, and even artist. So, I'm asking this community to please contribute! This project is actually extremely important to me, so any help from anyone would be more cherished than you can understand!

My goal is to get the majority of animals or animal groups covered, minus insects and spiders. (Unless you'd be willing to donate a really cool insect along with a bunch of information! But no spiders...) Anything else, and I really mean anything else, would be so, very appreciated.

If you'd like to help, please note me and we can work something out. :)

Thank you all very much!

I just wanted to stop by and say "Thank You" for requesting  my permission to add my Tutorial (Making celastic  ear liners') to your Gallery.  I am the Admin of a Taxi Group and I didn't realize we could request submissions!

Hi, me again. This page isn't very active, but I don't really need an immediate answer, but how does one measure a rabbit for buying a form? I have a whole small-medium size rabbit, gift from a lovely cats, frozen in my freezer. And how do you measure eyes? I can't find much online about it.

Hello, everyone. A little legal question about fur possession here.
I was wondering if anyone knew the fur laws in Chile, South America?

IŽll be moving from Texas to Chile this upcoming month, and I was wondering if IŽll be able to take my various foxes, coyotes, and raccoons there with me or if IŽll have to leave them at home.

That and when I get there, IŽm interested in buying more pelts, of course.

Any help or information is very much appreciated!!
