    Very nice! Would love to work on one of those or even better get one myself! Here we only have stinking fishheads!

  11. Very big monkfish again ! The third big one you got ? Going to beetles or maceration ?
     
  12. Those are some fantastic skulls. I know your pain, Nukawin. I would kill for a hyena skull.

    But I have a quick question about hyenas. So female hyenas have a small, non-functioning penis, right? Do female hyenas have a baculum? That'd be one hell of a trophy. AND one hell of an awkward explanation. ;D

    Actually, it is called a pseudopenis. Not a real one. I don't believe there is a baculum. As for the hyena skull, that is incredible and much bigger than the one I have.

    Neither male nor female hyenas are supposed to have bacula. Unfortunately I've never dissected one, but several papers indicate no bone.

    Just returned to a customer. It was his first buck. Sorry for the poor quality, it is from a cell phone photo.

    Nice presentation!

    JC: it lies in a beetle box now, but the lower jaw, tongue and gill bow were broken, so it won't be a spectacular skull. Good practice nonetheless. Tomorrow or the day after I'll post pictures from today's harvest which defrosts right now, I'll be busy coming days!
