I'd like to chat with any mole/gopher trappers about getting the carcasses for a donation to a museum for research/teaching purposes. Send me a personal message and I can explain more about what I'm doing and why, etc....

Basically, all you have to do is freeze each carcass in a plastic bag with its location and date of capture. If they aren't too rotten, then I can get a skin, skeleton, and tissue from each individual. I can arrange shipment or potentially pick them up in person.

Fyi: I'm a biologist studying gopher/moles. I've been catching pocket gophers for many years and have a little experience catching moles (Scapanus sp.). I will be collecting a handful of moles/gophers in N. California and Oregon this summer and fall, but I could use more.

Thanks for your time.

Sh--!

I may have posted this to the wrong section of the forum. Sorry. Rookie mistake.

The moderator can delete this thread as I posted it in the trapping only area of the forum.
