Anonymous said: When you make wet specimens like the snake do you fix them in anything/inject something before submersing them in alcohol, like formalin? Or do you take out some of the meaty parts and stuff it? I really want to make wet specimens with some things but am worried the insides will still rot.

Well, you’re SUPPOSE to do that.

However, I don’t. Formalin is a dangerous chemical that I don’t really want to mess with right now. Perhaps in the future I might, but alcohol works for me.

I literally just put them into alcohol. This isn’t the professional way of doing it but it’s only failed me once out of like 20 times.

I had a mole once that was just slightly too far gone in the decay cycle. I put it in alcohol and it floated. That’s a bad thing. It had gases inside. I ended up throwing that one out. But in my experience.. as long as you find the specimen fresh it works. 

It’s better if you inject them. It helps preserve when the alcohol is inside AND out.

Anonymous said: Hi! My friend was very nice to me the other day and gave me an antler she found. However, it has a lot of black spots on it, and I'm afraid its mold... What should I do? The antler has also some red shade to it

Hmm, I’m not exactly sure what the red shade of it is. I would just use some warm water, soap and some soap to gently scrub it clean. If it doesn’t come off I’d just leave it alone and let it dry really well.

WHEN DID I HIT 1,000 FOLLOWERS??


I found a baby toad that has a little scar on it’s head. Poor little one.


Some bug friends. Some of my favorite bug friends.


Just went to check on Sam the toad. He’s still cute and perfect as ever. I’m giving him his own tag.

gaardentoaster replied to your post: I had a frog catching party tonight!! …

Ooh that looks like fun!! Just last night I had a frog catching party with myself out in the rain. Soo many frogs!! All adorable just like the ones you have!

Frog catching is literally the funnest thing. I ADORE froggies and toads.


A super tini tiny little green moth!

A literal gem.

I’m giving the toad that lives on my porch a name. 

Meet Sam.
