As of February 2016, after 416 posts, and over six and a half years of blogging, I'm taking a break.
I've explained why here. There's plenty of past posts to read, though - hope you enjoy them !

Strange bones #3: I need your help !

Help ! I need your help to try and work out what animal this bone might have come from.

Peg found my website and emailed me to ask if I knew. His dog found the bone bits and Peg thought it might be from a white tail deer. I think Peg lives in the US.

I think I know which bone it is, but there are bits on it that look different, so I don't know the animal. The only bone with a hole in like that is the pelvis, the bone that the back legs are attached to. Here's the mystery bone and one of my roe deer hips together:

The bit that's different is the bit that kind of a folds over. I've not seen that before, and I've looked but I can't find any animal that has it. Can you help ?
