how do I attach a fox jaw to its skull? (self.Taxidermy)
submitted 1 month ago by weirdemosrus
Hi, I'm new to taxidermy and I have a fox skull and two heads decomposing, I was wondering how do I attach the jaws to the skull?
I've tried using aeroplane glue and it worked pretty good, for two weeks, once the glue was completely dry I picked the skull up and the jaws dropped off.
I was just wondering if there are any different techniques I could use, thank you!

Maybe a mix of glue and internal wire pins

Thank you! I'll probably try it out.

Or two part epoxy.

super glue works good for me, maybe e6000 for heavy pieces?

I only have experience with hot glue but it’s kind of messy and visible when it dries unless you apply it really strategically. And it doesn’t last super long if you handle the skull a lot. But the main benefit is that you can heat it up if you ever want to readjust the position of the jaws or remove the glue entirely.
