    • Doc. Robbins: Why would anybody want to taxidermy a human head?
      Grissom: I'm still working on the how.
      Doc. Robbins: That I can tell you. Mounted one myself… a deer. Dad was a hunter. First our guy had to separate the head from the body. For that, he used a serrated-edge knife. Dad used a carving knife, same one we used at Thanksgiving. When mom found out she almost killed him.
      Grissom: Heartwarming.
      Doc. Robbins: So, then he had to flesh the skin away from the underlying muscle. Next, he would have stretched the skin out on a board, rubbed it with rock salt... then waited for two days. Then he tanned the skin to preserve it. Hydrated it with a borax and water solution to keep the bugs away. Next he cleaned the skull, filling the imperfections with clay, sawdust, anything at hand. Popped in two glass eyes, and then...
      Grissom: And he got the best looking wall-mount in the neighborhood.
