Taking advantage of another spring-like day in the middle of the winter, I spent almost 2 hours wandering in the woods yesterday. This deer skull was one of the highlights of the day.
It is an almost perfect specimen with 2 complete rows of teeth (the bottom jaw is missing, of course). It is also quite clean mostly because it was not directly on the ground, but was resting on a fallen log as you can see in the picture. However, it has a peculiar permeating sulfurous smell. Brushing it with window cleaner, which contains isopropyl alcohol and some detergent didn't help. I am going to soak it in hydrogen peroxide tonite.
