tarsals

this is probably a stupid question but how do you not lose bones when your gona do an articulation

Not stupid at all bud! Here’s the thing: I TOTALLY lose bones all the time ’^^ no matter how careful I am when pouring out maceration buckets or peroxide, there’s almost always gonna b a missing toe or tarsal or something. (Everything is so small D:) That’s why I save parts from other critters! If I find roadkill that’s totally recked, I at least take the paws or jaws for spare parts. A preventive step you can take as well is to put the skull and feet individually into pantyhose before you macerate them, therefore you can’t lose tiny bones when you pour out the bucket! And keep your bones organized once they’re all clean. I keep em in a little jewelry box with sections meant for beads, it works p well!
