This morning, after dropping my daughter off at work, I took the time to check out the beach and take a walk.
It was really quite gorgeous.
As always, I keep an eye out for interesting things washed up by the waves and tides. For myself, I look for interesting rocks. For my older daughter, I look for interesting… anything.
And, wow, did I ever hit the jackpot today!!
At first glance, I actually thought it was some washed up, crumpled plastic or something.
I’ve found the odd jaw bone of a fish before, but never an entire skull! It’s pretty big, too. About the size of the palm of my hand. Slightly longer, in fact.
I have no clue what it is, though. That bone “sail” at the back of the skull is fascinating.
Does anyone recognize what it is?
Also, it rattles. There is something stuck inside the skull. Sounds like a small pebble.
As I write this, it is being disinfected! 😀
