white groundsquirrel by HippiUnicorn white groundsquirrel by HippiUnicorn
This is my first taxidermy ground squirrel!

It didn't turn out the way I wanted, but the white fur compensates a lot

I sold the squirrel on Etsy for 40€
Sadly this beautiful rare specimen is now
again for sale on Etsy [link]: for way to much money

And to see all my hours of work like that makes me cry out loud! :(

You didn't do too bad on it to be honest!

I think it's a part albino - some part-albinos are white with normal eyes, some white with blue eyes and some white with faint markings :) Only true albinos have red eyes.

You're welcome! I love watching fellow collectors. I envy your taxidermy skills! I just don't know where to begin myself.

I've done a little skinning, but I'm afraid to try tanning. I don't want to ruin anything.

Well Just try! If it goes wrong, then you learned how not to tan or skin! Then it only can go better

Wow this is awesome! Was he naturally white? Or did you dye his fur somehow? o.o Also, what did you use for the form of him?

Thank you! he was naturally white but not albino!
I made the form myself with woodwool

I was planning to dye the squirrel a bright colour, but White is beautiful
