The hare skull I’m currently working on, it’s coming along slowly, since I don’t really have anywhere to macerate it. I’ll see if I can fix that this weekend, but it’s likely it’ll just have to wait.
Half the lower jaw fell of when the skin was removed, so it’s not in the picture, and the other side of the skull is still mostly covered in rotted skin! :)
