Can you guess what it is?

No, not the sad result of a child whose parents were too stern about nail-biting, although that's not a bad guess.

Right-side up version is #10 in a really great slide show of skeletons and skulls, which accompanies a short article, "Skulls Engineered for Hard Knocks."

Apart from the above, my faves were the Argentine horned frog (#2), which has none that I can see, and the Chinese water deer (#6), which … wait, what? Tusks?

Yep. And you thought Lyme disease was their biggest threat. Canadians will tell you different!

Wow. Totally awesome slideshow. I really didn't expect to find some pictures of skeletons to be so interesting.

Glad you liked it!

On a thoroughly unrelated note, Go12 meetup on Saturday. I hope so hard that your company has sent you east for Important Business Reasons, and that you will be able to attend.

Oh, that would be fun, but no, sadly, I won't be able to make it. But I appreciate the invitation. Where are you guys meeting?

At one of Ocean's dry-land domiciles.

We'll hoist a glass in honor of absent friends, you most prominently, as we always do.

Now, dammit, start thinking about how you can get boss to pay for trip east on Srs Fack-Finding Mishin for next time!
