My baby goat goat has joined the wall of horns (and antlers)! I promise it looks a bit more symmetrical and cute in real life D:
I’m waiting on my big bucket of bones to finish degreasing, then many things, including baby goat here, will be thrown in with them for a big peroxide bath.

Cactus batch 3! The finale c:

Top three photos are of our front yard cacti. It’s been getting slowly overgrown out there. Eventually we’ll be moving, which is why a lot of her cacti are grouped up and not displayed all pretty like they used to. But I’m telling you, she has such the variety! And some aren’t even in bloom yet.

Cactus batch 2!

I told my mom she should make a tumblr for her cacti/plants. She grew all her cactus from babies with lots of love c: The top picture is an older photo by her too, when some of the cacti had seen better days haha

Cactus batch no. 1! These are the cacti currently sitting on that bench, plus her beautiful orchid cactus in full bloom by our doors (an old picture).

God, you don’t realize how much of something you have until you specifically go out searching for them! I’ve got tons of pictures of our cacti coming up (I’m terrible at taking pictures and our backyard is a mess so they won’t be super pretty) so fair warning!

Can we appreciate, for a moment, how beautiful Jack’s color is when he’s wet? Nature is awesome.

A quick, crappy photo shoot with my horsey before the sun went down. He’s got such a lovely color and perfect teeth! I’ve fondly named him Jack after both a good friend of mine and my favorite horse of all time c:

Forget the horse lets talk about those cacti

My mom LOVES cacti! That’s not even half of the variety she has right now. These are all sitting on our bench because she was cleaning up the patio, which made for a lovely place to take pictures c: Cacti are seriously the best plants, especially in our drought-ridden county.

MY DAD GOT ME A HORSE GUYS
and it wont bankrupt me
Look at this gorgeous boy! My dad got him from an old family friend who found this cutie on her property I believe (he’ll dig for more information when he talks to her again). I cannot express how happy I am to have a horse skull, and one as beautiful as this fella. Then my dad lifted up a bag and underneath was that adorable baby goat skull! I’ll be home tomorrow to give them a good rinse and sundry them, then my baby goat is joining my horned friends and my horsey will be right next to my bed so I can look at him always c:

Guys. GUYS. I should have posted this yesterday, but I had no energy or sunlight to show you my surprise! My dad got home the day before yesterday from visiting his family on the east coast and while I trust him to always look out for bone goodies, he gave me no indication he found anything good. Low and behold, when I finally got to see him last night he was hiding a big surprise from me. I cried, I really did. Pictures coming up!

hello! im an inspiring bone hunter. i want to start collecting things like bones, hides, teeth, antlers, you name it. but of course, i have little to no experience. ive been wanting to start vulture culture, but i dont know how to clean the skulls, find them under united states policies, and just preserve and take care of them in general. are their any suggestions you may add?

Hey there! I apologize for being late to the party, and I see you’ve gotten many other very great answers already c: I can only add a few posts I’ve made myself that I hope can help: my decomposition guide which is a great way to clean bones, for new vultures especially, and this post I wrote up during our 31 days of VC has some good tips! The scavenging link on my blog has all of my bone hunting pictures so you can get an idea of what to look for too c:

Bone cleaning is a lot simpler than it seems once you work yourself past all the little details. Most of it is patience! Once they’re all cleaned up the only thing you’ll have to do with them is display and dust every so often.

And when in doubt, just stalk the vulture culture tag! These guys will inspire you, help you, and give you the best secondhand experience money can’t buy ^_^

I must thank boneyadventures for providing the step by step info that had produced this nifty fox skull specimen. We found it Thanksgiving of 2013 in Morro Bay, plopped it into a crate in the sun, and voila- skull. Thanks.

I’m so happy to hear that! Congrats, it looks lovely C:

Okay you guys, I’m warning you that I won’t be able to post for the next few days because some friends and I are going camping! Not that not posting is abnormal this blog has been so dead

So anyways! There will be lots of hiking involved and I’m hoping to score some goodies while I’m there c: There will at least be pictures to show you all my adventures, boney or not! All of my bone projects are set until I come back; I’ve even got my mom to empty and refill my degreasing buckets c:

That’s it! I look forward to coming back and checking up on everyone and their bones!

Mmmmm. The good thing about algae taking over my mac bucket is that it smelled like I was scrubbing sludge off bones right by the lake. Much more pleasant smelling than maceration! About half of the bones in my orange bucket made it to their soapy bath, and the other half is sitting in my decomp pot to get the last of their ligaments eaten up. I’ve got a few more days of intense heat so I’m hoping these bones will finish up soon!
