Snake skin removal

If a snake of yours will die, will you remove it's skin?

I don't think I could(Julie) and Tim says he probably wouldn't either, but that is a very interesting quetion. Afterall, people do have their dogs and cats stuffed, and we do have our first dog cremated in a cedar box, so it's not a big stretch to save a skin I suppose.

No I wouldn't.
I don't get attached to inanimate object (as would be a dead snake), so I would avoid the ceremonial burying and such. Pictures are what I want to keep.

I dont have any snakes where the skin would be worth removing from there body however i have seen albino burmese python skin and that would definately be worth taking from the body

A friend of ours had a beautiful burmese for several years, and sudden death shocked him one day. He had the skin professionally removed and preserved with proper tanning, and it is a remarkable keepsake. My friend has it to this day, and it still looks great, and is a good teaching tool when dealing with the public with it measuring 18-20' thereabouts.
I am not sure if I personally could do it, but for those with animals that were hands down jaw dropping, why not?

I would, how do you do it yourself, as I have a boa in deep freeze.

On a similar note recently a deer hit my van, so i draged it back to the house, gutted it, skined it, eat the venison (Still am) and tanned the skin, which is hanging on my wall net to a large mouth bass.

Well, one of my juvenile Bci with very red tail died (5 months ago). I tried myself -taking a deep breath first- i put it in the oven in slow temps just to dried it up, then i took a cutter, i opened one end from below, then i took the scissors and cut the skin at length from one end to the other. Unpleasant experience!...latter i heard for some other tips.

Vic (and Lisa) - That's actually a good way to get free meat if you get the body soon after it was hit. After all, hunters drag their kills all around to weighing stations and such, and the meat is still good when they get around to it. It sounds gross to pick up road-kill, but it really isn't. Seems like a waste of meat - and a life - to just let it sit by the side of the road, you know?

- Victoria :w
