Hi all.

I have a quick question about mounting otters in a diving or swimming pose (taxidermy, not trapping question!). Is the otter affixed to a base through a metal wire? If so, do you know where the metal enters the body of the otter and what kind of base the wire gets affixed to?

Thanks,

/shawn

Hi Cashburton

It you would post your question on the campfire section, you will most likely get a faster answer.

Good Luck

Well all of that would depend on the way you wanted things to look. It's up to you which direction you would want the otter to be swimming. If you have a certain wall in your house that you plan on hanging it on, you would want it to swim in the direction that faces the main living space. (You wouldn't want it facing a corner) The taxidermist will buy a foam mold that they will pull the hide over. Generally they will attach the otter to a piece of drift wood by using a couple pieces of #9 wire pushed into the side of the otter facing the wall.

Good info here sniper....but I think the post of cashburton is about 2 years old.
