What a collection of bones.

only slightly confused said...

Poor little guy. Wonder what got him?

TexWisGirl said...

i've kept a few skulls from coyotes, cattle, horses, etc. don't think i've seen a raccoon.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

You had to keep the skull at least.
You know, a collection of those along the driveway to your house would keep unwanted visitors out.

What a discovery! I bet you run across all kinds of interesting things on your land.

Jo said...

The amount of bones you show, gives lie to my idea of the size of a raccoon! Now that I live in the mountains, I have time to explore as well.

Michelle said...

Pretty cool discovery!

Debbie said...

oooh my, it looks so big for a raccoon and so many bones!!!

1st Man said...

Like others have said, that's a lot of bones. Wow. So I have to ask, what will you do with them? I am sure that I'll find some bones on our farm at some point during my exploration and if there's something cool to do with them (after cleaning of course, ha) I'm in!

This is so interesing. Of course, I am curious about the critters who leave their bones behind. I have been known to bury many critter remains. Thanks for sharing.

Mary Ann said...

I would have kept them, too! :-)

Arkansas Patti said...

Bones, especially skulls, fascinate me. Were you tempted to put them in order?

Ginny Hartzler said...

Well, I am amazed! How on earth did you know this was a raccoon? You always continue to impress me. I think you know more about nature than the Pioneer woman herself!

That's a great selection/collection of bones

All the best Jan

What a great discovery...I would have kept them too...a lesson plan in the making...

LindaG said...

I like Alex's idea. But I think you might be able to work them into your dragon, too.
I had no idea that was a raccoon skull. Very interesting post, Gail!
I hope you all have a blessed week!

Josie Two Shoes said...

Very cool discovery! I love that you appreciate them and the little creature they once supported so well! I cannot help but always marvel at how living things are made, the complexity and every tiny detail!

Lynne said...

Wow . . . quite the discovery to happen on . .

Cool I would have kept it too! :)
