Peroxode or Boil this Mummy? Answered
Hi, I found a mummified small animal (possum, little dog, raccoon) under a friend's house, when doing plumbing repairs. It is all there except maybe the feet. I cant really tell, because he is kinda twisted around, and I have not touched him yet. There is some skin, no fur - he is so dry that the live animals arent even iterested in smelling him. I would like to clean and maybe try to articulate him; if too many bones are missing I will just keep his skull. My question is - what is the best way to remove the dry skin? Instructions I have read are all about fresh skin. Should I boil him or just soak him in peroxide to remove his skin? Thank you!
