Rocky probably was not the result of a traffic accident but is rather flattened with an intact skull. Also the lower leg bones and feet are preserved in the skin. It is an interesting piece of taxidermy as it was mummified. A professional taxidermist would have boilded the skul and put in the fake eyes etc.
On another note I often see cutesy taxidermy with raccoons. Knowing that it is an actual dead animal and that just does not work for me. This one is definitely not cute.
Rocky is 35" long and will take up a lot of wall space. I shall think carefully on how to display him.
