here's a project i finished for my father two years ago. the snake was obviously hit with shot to the head, which made it difficult to piece together, but the end result still ended up pretty nice. origanally, it was about 5', but by the time i was finished it was around 7'. mounted it on felt with a border from hobby lobby and added some plaques telling species and such.
