    Well ive posted before about my weird bone, and i was asked for pictures, well I finally got some!

    I think it is some kind of wild pig skull, but im not sure.

    When I asked the person who owned the property I was on as well as her cousin , they tried to tell me that it was an opossum skull... so i just kind of walked away and decided to see if any of you could help me out [​IMG]

    All I can tell you is it's a pelvic bone of some kind.

    That's not a skull at all. This is a wild pig skull.

    I'm also guessing a pelvic bone.

    I did a quick search online for 'bird pelvis bone' and found 2-3 other pics of similiar looking items, none with the pronounced vertebrae tho! Strange!

    I think tho that it is definetly a bird pelvis. One of the other photos was ID'd as a great blue heron pelvis, and it was longer and narrow. makes me think Turkey?

    Cool whatever it turns out to be!! Great find!
