About two years ago, maybe more, I was brainstorming with someone, I can't remember who it was now, and we came up with the idea of a toy animal that would bite someone. They wouldnt feel it, but when they look at where they were supposedly bitten, they have bite marks.

I was just now thinking about it again, and I came up with the idea to use a snake skeleton, which, although the specemin is dead, still bites. After waving the head over or near thier hand, it actually leaves fang marks.

With this I have a few questions... is it a marketed effect? If it is, than I do not need to proceed any further. If it isn't, than do any of you know where I could find a snake skeleton?

Thanks!

That's the thing about living in the UK. We don't have many snakes, so I wouldn't know if it's expensive or cheap. Now the US..... can't you walk outside and pick one up....only joking

That reminds me .........I remember seeing a kids 3 D jigsaw that was the skeleton of a snake. With the right paint job.....I'll keep an eye open

What about turning a fake one into a live one? Kind of like "Holy Moses" by Rick Johnson (Practical Impossibilities).

That would be REALLY cool....

But my mom is terrified of snakes. Mice... I don't know. I have never really liked animals that need to be fed and all on a daily basis.

Greetings,

Doc Sheils had a fun routine where the lights went out and an evil elf escaped out of a box. The elf left foot prints in the sand and bit a guest with an evil giggle. Perhaps someone can recall which of his books it is in?

(Note that many of Sheils' effects required turning out the lights Smile

TTFN,
Sam Haine
