Old Bones

I haven’t had much oppotunity to dig in the back yard and find much in the way of new old stuff to post about, so any unearthing being done must be credited to Ranger whose excavations around the place are many. Next to one particularly deep hole close to the hammock I found this 1.5 inch-long jaw fragment (click to triplify):


I’m clueless as to what critter this belonged to, but given it’s size I’d hazard whatever it was it wasn’t very old, and with the severely deteriorated condition the bone and teeth I’m pretty confident in saying it had been in the ground for a long, long time.
