    I’m surprised by the wide variety of pelvis bones in the animal kingdom. Skulls all pretty much look like skulls, femurs all look like femurs — but pelvises seem to differ widely between species.

    My guess is a pelvis. But it looks like it would be a great Hallowe’en mask!

    Last year a friend called and said he’d found a strange skull on Snake Mountain while hiking, and asked if I’d stop by sometime and see if I could identify it. When I visited him he had a deer pelvis prominently displayed.
