Do you remember the awesome raccoon sleeping in the tree-top discovery? Well, that’s not all I discovered that day…I found the most interesting bone laying right on top of the ice on my trail. Yes, a bone.
Where did it come from? Who was chewing on it? Could this be a deer bone that a coyote cleaned off and then left on the trail? I don’t know, but it sure is an awesome find.
The neat part of this bone is all of the colors it contains. I can see green, blue, tan, and gray colors. It’s not just a white bone. Another fascinating aspect is the chew marks that an animal left as evidence on the bone. Some animal was very hard at work taking all the meat off.
Here is what the real bone looks like. I have no idea what animal this belonged to or where on the animal it should be located. Maybe someday I will figure it out, until then all I can do is sketch it.
