    I found this skeleton today. I didn't get very good pics because I was in a hurry and for certain reasons I didn't want to get too close.

    Any guess what it is?

    Looks like a fawn. I'd need to see the skull unobstructed to saw for sure tho.

    Judging by the size of the femur, it looks like deer.If you could specify how big the the skeleton was, it would be helpfull. Also look how the back feet joint away from the body.

    edit: lol we all posted at the same time!

    That's tough because there are bones from more than one animal there. So I downloaded the photos for analysis by the latest forensic reconstruction software and here's the result. Apparently one animal choked while trying to eat the other three.

    Without digging through the weeds and bones I couldn't find the feet

    The size would be a medium deer size. Look at my shadow for reference.

    I got it! It is one of the neighborhood dogs that got swallowed by the capensis bog. Yeah, that's it. That's the ticket! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]

    Too big to be a cat, and too big to be a dog, unless it's a great dane or St. Benard.
