Daddy recently came across an animal skeleton at the golf course. Being the homeschool dad that he is, in between playing he scooped up the skull and brought it home!
The family had a good time guessing which animal the skull came from. Mommy correctly identified it as an opossum before researching it online. From the illustrations we had a good time identifying the other parts of the skeleton.
Here is a good illustration of the skull.
If you come across an animal skull or bone the next time you are golfing be sure to read:
Instructions for preserving animal skulls and bones.
The learning never ends!
