    Hey folks!

    So, I just wanted to show you my first skull that I cleaned and put back together myself.

    I am very pleased with how it turned out (the skull had quite a bit of damage, so i reckon a cat must have gotten to it), but I was wondering if anyone would want to give me a bit of feedback, so I know what to improve for next time.

    With this rat skull, the molars were so difficult to get back in and I did lose a couple of them, but overall, it went alright.

    Bone looks clean although damaged from the cat. When you go to rinse specimens, use a larger container and be gentle with the force of the water. It's easy to wash away small things like tiny bones and teeth and lose them.
