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 !

A new book about bone collecting


There is a bone collector in Scotland with even more skulls than me. His name is Michael Fox and he has 1,000 skulls from all around the world ! He has been very kind to me and he gave me my first badger skull, a barn owl skull and a cool monkfish skull I haven't written about yet.

He has written a book called "The Beginners Guide to Skull Collecting" which you can buy at Blurb. Some books about skulls can be difficult for kids to read, but this is easy to read, and he has written 266 pages about his own skull collection, and how to find, prepare and identify skulls.

It has a very interesting book because it has photographs of lots of skulls I haven't seen before including a giraffe skull ! The Blurb page has a preview where you can see some of them.

Enjoy this post ? Share it !
