My first experience processing an otter. I need to start keeping them notepad with me, they're all different. This animal has an insanely meaty head. I have no other words to describe it. It was like a ball of meat, and then the flat little skull buried in the middle of it. It took way more hours to process this guy then it does the Bobcats. I dumped greasy water about 4 times, & I mean greasy. But the skull came out with 0 grease in it. That was it. A quick peroxide bath, put his teeth back, he's ready to go into commissions. He dried incredibly quickly as well.

And those are carbide bit puncture wounds on my legs. I carve on my lap and sometimes I start falling asleep. I won't even sleep when I'm dead.
