Could someone post some close-ups of a dermestid-cleaned skull? Thinking like the back of the skull (that nasty tendon connection point), vertebrae area, ears, etc.

Got my 2022 bull back (long-story) and I’m trying to judge the quality of work.

Deep down I know the answer. Just want to confirm. What I’m already thinking.
 
Not cleaned well, not degreased well, I’ve never seen one so wanting to triple check before I jump to conclusions.
The best/most expensive taxidermist around me does all his euros by boiling. Every one of them I’ve seen had pieces of flesh left behind and simply covered with white paint. I can’t believe people are paying what they do for them
 
I do not, but am interested in learning the process. Still waiting on my whitetail from last fall. Thinking I need to just do it myself going forward.
Don't recook it. Sous vide it. Sometimes just simple hydration and a pressure washer can fix it to.

Low temp 125 130 with volume 40 clear peroxide and water. Little borax or tide powder. Pressure wash. Bueno
