final tracks

I love tracking. Some say an animal's skull is the last track it leaves behind. Maybe that is why I love skulls so much.

This is a skunk skull we found on the banks of the Conestoga river in PA. It was an old guy - teeth worn down, and evidence of severe infection above the canines. This one lived long, but its last years may have been difficult.

This skull I cleaned up from a roadkill beaver we found in Freeville, NY. It was a huge animal - probably over 40 pounds of rodent power.

The photos don't do it justice. This guy was huge.
