I've had this bone for ages but it's only been this week when I've worked out exactly what it is. It's the strangest bone I think I have because me and dad couldn't find any other pictures of it at all.
Years ago, me Mum and Dad were in the Pheasant woods, and I think it was the first time we were ever in Duck Skull Valley. Duck Skull Valley is a valley between three sets of woods which is great for watching roe deer in the winter. It has a small lake in the middle, and I was exploring the lake when I found a duck skeleton right next to it with all the bones in a pile.

Last Sunday I got a surprise email from a a lady called Professor Sue Black. Professor Black is a famous professor of Anatomy and Forensic Anthropology at the University of Dundee, and she found my website when she was looking for a picture of a swan furculum (I have one and I wrote about it here). She invited me up to the Centre for Anatomy and Human Identification which she runs to see their dermestid beetles.

Two weekends ago when I found the young roe buck skull, I also found this fox skull nearby. It's not in great condition, but I kept it because I don't have that many fox skulls, just five. I still don't have a perfect fox skull, with lower jaws and all the teeth, but I should have one when the fox I buried last year rots down.

Last weekend me and dad went to explore some new woods a few miles from the house. We found quite a lot of bones, including a skeleton of a young roe deer. The skeleton was in woods, and was scattered over a really big area. The jaws and skull were maybe thirty feet away from each other so we were lucky to find them all.
