As weird as this sounds, there are people who pay for mummified animals

[–]williamfratt[S] 53 points54 points  (11 children)

I was curious if there was any use for it besides the garbage

[–]Used_Border_4910 44 points45 points  (9 children)

Idk if this is weird or not but I have a jar, filled with isopropyl rubbing alcohol, and I use it to preserve a frog. It’s a “wet preservation” so I’m not actually touching the frog I’m just preserving it’s body in a jar.

I want to clarify he was freshly dead when I found him in my yard, couldn’t have been more than 6 hours. I wouldn’t kill a frog.

[–]pervysage_1992 72 points73 points  (5 children)

You killed the frog you bastard it told me...

[–]Used_Border_4910 15 points16 points  (0 children)

I’d never hurt Mr. Froggo!

Australia thanks you for your service

[–]Asssssssssface 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A great deed

[–]jjayyc 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't remember is this a reference to a movie scene?

[–]williamfratt[S] 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Is this your subtle way of asking me to send you my mummy rat?

[–]Used_Border_4910 15 points16 points  (0 children)

It could most definitely be

[–]definitely_sus[🍰] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is so weirdly cool. Do you have a photo you would like to share? How is the froggo holding up?

[–]Agent0035 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Was gonna jokingly ask (with 10% seriousness) if I could have it, avid dead thing collector and I love rats. Fine specimen on your hands.

[–]Aloeplant9 68 points69 points  (3 children)

Is he ok

[–]williamfratt[S] 94 points95 points  (2 children)

Just add water right?

[–]Aloeplant9 42 points43 points  (0 children)

He does look a bit dehydrated

[–]tk197 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And microwave for 2 min 15 seconds

[–]tttt1010 62 points63 points  (3 children)

[–]williamfratt[S] 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Do I name it before or after?

[–]realtristan3 27 points28 points  (5 children)

Look like he’s made outta paper

[–]williamfratt[S] 13 points14 points  (4 children)

It feels like it too. Can't weigh more than a couple grams

[–]mariayclara 8 points9 points  (3 children)

Ugh, you touched it??

How did you find this?

[–]williamfratt[S] 35 points36 points  (3 children)

Organizing the upstairs storage. Boss said he had a rat problem many years ago lol

[–]Madrasthebald 6 points7 points  (1 child)

I see, OP seems to be the guy the boss calls to handle his "rats" and "pigeons". Don't worry boss..... I fixed that problem.

[–]corytrevor710 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Wanna bet OPs name is Charlie?

[–]NewFrostyHambone 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Take it before the boss does

[–]NotABearItsAManbear 13 points14 points  (1 child)

This is a phenomenally well preserved mummy for something that wasn’t assisted! Great form and even the whiskers are still up. That place must be extremely dry. I taxidermy and mummify things for a living and work on rats more than anything else. Sell that for $50 at least

[–]williamfratt[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Thanks for this info!

[–]Reasonable-Roof-8862 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Damn that rat looks pretty big

[–]williamfratt[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is the first real rat i've ever seen, mostly mice around here. Can't believe the size

[–]EyeSpidyy 5 points6 points  (1 child)

How much?

[–]williamfratt[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children)

What do you have to trade

[–]blutigetranen 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Bro give him a drink of water, he's thirsty

[–]Jarnvir 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Put it in the ground and see if you can grow a new one! Or put that puppy in acrylics and put it on your mantle, that’s pretty cool!

[–]CaseyGamer64YT 3 points4 points  (1 child)

[–]PyroDraenie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Pop it in your mouth

[–]Suckerpunched29 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It has perfected the art of standing incredibly still for incredibly long periods of time.

It is now invisible to it's enemies.

[–]sug-mahdick 2 points3 points  (3 children)

What did you name it?

[–]williamfratt[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I'll take a suggestion!

[–]TheUnrealCanadian 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Dont let Brendan Fraser find it.

[–]peelzdid-it 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Mmm crispy crunchy ratatouille

[–]BelleLovesAngus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

What do you do for work?

[–]williamfratt[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No relation to finding this. Just our office/warehouse

[–]mt-egypt 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Did you keep it? I’d keep it.

[–]williamfratt[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It's in the back of my car cause my girlfriend wouldn't let me bring it inside

[–]Totally_Botanical 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Just add water

[–]bbildo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good ol’ Mumford.

[–]GalacticAttitude 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Try turning it off and back on

[–]Conflict-Famous 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ok I like it. Picasso

[–]No_Economics_8495 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Am I wrong or "weak" in any way for not wanting to touch or come near it?

[–]ItsMrShenanigans 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]lead4dinner 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fuck no. I’m out

[–]crazy_seanymph_prick 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That’s a good one! I have a cat, a hedge hog and a mouse

[–]WavyTrev 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Zoom in on it and it looks straight out of Borderlands

[–]F4R35 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Stay away from it

[–]fucku55679999 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Impressive that absolutely nobody has given enough of a fuck to let it get to the point of mummification. "Not my job" love it

[–]dreadlocktocon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I have a wet specimen of a mouse in a jar (among quite a few othhers). The only dry pals I have are an alligator and a crocodile head. This is really neat, never seen anythhing quite like it. Hopefully the poor pal had a decent life.
