UV unwrap multiple objects

Hi, I modeled this fella with multiple objects but now I am unsure how to do the easiest UV unwrap. I know I can do each object separately, but is there an easier way? He will be animated eventually (his tongue will curl in and mouth will open and close) so should I join the objects into one mesh perhaps?



yes, join them into one object, but keep overlapping pieces apart if there are any. then once you’ve unwrapped him, you can seperate them again.
