While hiking with Ellen the other day, we found this piece of bone that obviously is part of a skull. But whose? We'll play a game today.
Hoping you won't be grossed out. This is all part of nature, as much as the cute bunnies and birds. Yes, this has been chewed on. Just try to remember that some other critter lived because this one died. (When we eat meat we do it too!) Here's a little help. Just to orient you, I've labeled the back and the eye sockets.
Here's the game- just leave a comment as to which one of the skulls this piece matches, and why you think so. There is no trick. I've oriented them all the same. Don't be fooled by size- there can be a lot of variation between individuals in any species. The fragment is smaller than some of the whole ones and larger than others. The piece is a match for one of these.
