Skull Pix 1

Today: rain stops play, and work.
As you've probably noticed I love skulls and skull motifs, and I'm not the only one.
Regular Commenter Goofy Girl pointed me in the direction of the excellent Skull-a-Day where skull art and skull-like things are posted. This afternoon I received an unexpected call from JonGee who is taking a break from his monastic studies and passing through 'Old Larnden Taarn' he's the owner of a VERY impressive collection of skulls from his travels and his day job. The main collection is in storage but in the meantime here's one he did have a picture of, on his computer.

For Five solid gold bushwacker points - name the animal that used to live in it- answers on a comment.

Your pal

So Mr. SBW,
We're now adding quiz-master to one's list of many devious talents are we? Damn your ingenious yet unscrupulous means of improving your already excellent blog. Oh alright I'll put the fluffy white cat down and have a go.
Me thinks it be reptile skull perchance? At first I leaned towards tortoise but then me thinks with that jaw structure, terrapin? ha possibly a snapper? ha the points are mine all mine I tell thee.
ah yes, best regards,
John
