    These are all pinned thru various points on the shoulder back or neck and all are removable with male-female sliding pics on the branches.

    First time I've seen a zebra done like that. You have probably just added $1200 to my bill on next weeks trip. Nice work sir.

    You're killing me with that zebra! That's my favorite pose for a zebra and you nail it all the time. Impressive.....

    Thank you. I work hard at it. I want them right...
    Anyone ever notice my great manes...on all my zebra's
    That's a lot of hard work, look at lots of zebra's seems no-one cares how aligned the mane should be.
    I see hair going everywhere and the taxidermist blame it on the skinner or tanning or just abad mane
    NO they all can look like this one, if you take the extra hours to do it
    Thanks again, let me do one for you Jody !

    There is nothing as classic as zebra pedestal. Too many zebra are just rugs. :)

    I do like the mane, perfect, Tucking the jaw tight into the neck is also what sets yours apart.

    As far as doing one for me..... I'm working on it. Fingers crossed, I make it back next summer.

    Really like the zebra. Stunning really when it's made like a chess piece. Makes me want to shoot another one.

    That is awesome! Makes me want a springbok slam!! And, I never wanted one before now. Maybe we should limit the number of posts that Dennis can make. His posts always make me want to spend more money!! :)
