I attached the normal otter to the pied otter. It's coming along!

This was a total stroke of luck! The private tanner that I use noticed how many pied deer I was sending him and mentioned that his trapper friend had caught a pied otter years previous and he'd tried to mount it himself half way through he realized that taxidermy was harder than he'd though so he put the whole unfinished mount in the freezer (it was in a sitting pose) and left it there for years. Uncertain if it could be saved he sold it to me for 300$ and I soaked it off his form and presto!

Wow! That's pretty lucky that happened! 
It's definitely not common to find a pied otter while trapping! Lovely mount and great job restoring the little guy! Otter La

Yes, but it's 5,000$  (free shipping to the Lower 48).  Piebald otter are insane rare.

I hope to! I was going to this year, but the competition was too soon in the year. I still need to do the touch up work (I haven't gotten to the weeds yet).

Thank you!
