This post won’t be for everyone; it’s perhaps grisly or macabre, but if you have any interest in animal anatomy you might like it.
On a volunteer day we found this skull, so I’ve identified, washed, and photographed it of course!
I like animals, and anatomy; all science really, so I couldn’t resist taking a look at this skull and seeing if I could figure out what it was. At very first glance it looked a bit raptor-ish (the teeth weren’t clearly visible), but as soon as I got a better look at it we wondered if it was a rat – I’ve never ID’d a skull before!
Once I researched it, it was pretty clear it’s a rabbit. Something to do with little peg teeth behind the front incisors. You can’t see them in my photos, but they’re there. I used Skullsite to ID the skull.
Sadly it’s not a full skull, there’s no lower jaw, but it’s fascinating anyway.
There are a few more photos in my Still life album.
