Last Tuesday, students from my work found a rat skeleton in our school’s garden. It was likely seeking refuge from the drought. My boss and I cleaned the bones using a Tide BioDetergent packet, warm water, and dexterous fingers (:
If you look closely, you can see where the single tooth is missing from in the upper jaw.
I’ve added captions to give you an idea of what you’re looking at, but if anyone can help me further identify these bones, that’d be awesome.
