Wild boar skull

Remember a while ago we saw a dead wild boar near our wood? Well, it's been eaten and/or decomposed, leaving just a skull and spine now. We've checked with the people who own the wood and they don't want it, so we're going to take it away and boil the skull to get it clean, then give it to someone we know who lectures on wildlife, so they can show it to their students.

You're going to BOIL a decomposing boar skull?!?!

You are SO on your own with that one.

Don't worry, we're going to boil it in an old can at the wood, not in the kitchen! :-)

This looks frighteningly similar to a terminator pig skull from millions of years ago,a huge 7ft tall terrifying animal that was the top predator in north America at the time,isn't it wonderful that we still have fairytale mythical beasts like wild boars still around to stir our imaginations :)
