Does anyone have any knowledge on how to properly tan a snake skin or know of anyone I could send a snake skin to get professionally tanned?

The method outlined below was used by a friend of mine with good success, but I have not personally tried it.

pull it inside out, fill with corn, paint outside with glycerin, then hang for a week


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Scrape the fat off the inside of the skin before you apply anything.

^^^^ probably the best advice from a taxi

Glycerin will not preserve it for years, we have done some that way.
Antifreeze can stain them also, at least ones we have done.
Snake tan actually tans the hide.
