    to want to taxidermy my lizard when he dies?

    I wouldn't dream of doing that to either of my dogs, but I thought having Julius hung on the wall would be OK to do... :dunno:

    well being that my dad started doing taxidermy when he was 10yo and still does it now . i would say yeah go ahead and get him mounted i dont se how it would be wrong but us taxidermy families are wierd :D it would be cool to have a favorite pet around even after he's gone

    Dont know if I would mount my lizard, ( does that sound right ? ) but I can see your distinction between the lizard and the dogs. A stuffed lizard in the right setting can be cool.

    My mom wanted to have Ruby stuffed when she passed away. I couldn't stand the idea myself. Loved her too much to want to see her everyday after she was gone. Only thing I see a reason to have moutned is an impressive kill that you got while hunting.
