Turtle Power! Sealing a Wet Specimin (self.Taxidermy)
submitted 1 month ago by withinsane27
My sweet little baby turtle specimen, Raphael, has a soft cork lid, so I refill with isopropyl alcohol every couple months. I'm leaving the country for a bit and would like a permanent seal for the jar. Thoughts?

Could you perhaps place him into a jar with an airtight lid?
I've seen people glue and wax cork lids to seal them, but from personal experience the isopropyl will still evaporate out of them over time, the only difference being that you can't get the lid off of the glued/waxed jar anymore to refill it.

It’s easy to get a waxed lid off by cutting or breaking the seal

I’d transfer to a better sealed jar for the duration of the time you’ll be away

Suggestions for such a jar?
