Reptile Replicas

by Steve Bledsoe

                                                  
SWFHA Associate Steve Bledsoe specializes in the creation of museum quality replicas of native reptiles and amphibians. Replicas of many native and exotic species of snakes, lizards, turtles, frogs, toads and salamanders are available. Unlike taxidermy skin mounts, no animal skins or other parts of dead animals are used in the replication. These life size replicas are cast in plastic resin from a collection of reusable molds, then hand painted to accurately replicate living specimens. They are ideal for nature center and museum dioramas, classroom displays, and interpretive programs. Unlike taxidermy skin mounts, these resin replicas will not deteriorate or decay with time.
