    Dennis,

    As always, truly incredible work...! The facial detail is uncomparable to any that I've seen, and your originality of the poses are remarkable.

    Thanks Bluey,
    Count in design time, Alteration for poses time, welding interior structure of all animals and tree to make it all come apart for shipping, the mounting time fixing skinning flaws and skin damage, finishing time for texturing replaced damaged skin, mouth work and all the deatils.
    I'd come up with a number of 100+ man hours.

    Dennis, the first time I saw an orange nose on a cat I thought the taxidermist had lost his mind.
    Looked at some books and went to the zoo and sure enough....

    Its all in the details. You have the detail.
