Default Taxidermist/Dermestid Beetles

Hey there,

I was wondering if anyone had access to any Dermestid beetles and would be willing to donate their time for 3 Alligator Gar skulls. We do some public outreach and youth programs with work and would like to use these if possible.

One skull is already almost completely stripped. I tried to do it myself by skinning and light simmering but there is still some flesh that I am unable to get. Fish skulls are way more difficult than deer or gators!

One skull was fresh dead and was frozen right after we got all our samples from it.

The last skull is the smallest (approx. 10" long) but also the ickiest. It had been dead a few days once we found it and then frozen.

I can prep them the best I can beforehand. Thanks!
