Can anyone help me out please.  I'm putting together a presentation for an outdoor gathering where I'm going to be talking about tracking as it is my favourite outdoors skill.  Coupled with the fact that I'm a herper, it is this aspect I want o deliver on in a way that they have never seen before.  In that respect, it would be wonderful if any of you have some shed skins you can send me that I can use on pass arounds.  I usually have a fair amount of adder grass snake and slow-worm-socks, but my little girls has taken them to school for the nature table and I only have some grotty berus skins.  All reptiles needed, especially snakes.

I'd be eternally grateful if you could help me out and would reimburse you for your trouble.

 

EDIT: Any old Natrix shells would be of great use too.

Are they not a bit fragile for pass arounds?

Ah, that explains.
Do you have any tins you could look under? I've found them there.

I can find adder skins no problem (although this time of year, they degrade really quickly in the damp).  Grass snake skins I only tend to find in Spring.  I'm too far North for Smooth skins.  Little slow-worm socks I have found out today from an old collection from my youth (no Natrix though).

All my adder skins seem to be male, so could do with females.
