From:Barry Rittman

have not processed these but have processed manatee whiskers (hey we all
have to have a hobby!!). I asume that these are not just whiskers in skin
but are separate?
The problem is that they will tend to tear from the wax. I would recommend
double embedding e.g. Peterfi, or at least using a longer processing
schedule and maybe a harder wax.

I just tried to section some seal whiskers in paraffin for a co-worker.  I
did not process them, but he said it was the routine protocol.  The
material seemed wet and unpenetrated by paraffin.

Any experience with this, or suggestions for processing?

Thanks for your time.
