    In the long long ago valentine97 kindly sent me this turtle shell along with some other items. The shell has been sitting in this case for a few years now. Perhaps 5 years.
    Not sure what sort of turtle this is from. Looks like the kind that live in ponds and lakes. The shell is 4" long and let me say what else I can say about it. It has a top and bottom. The turtle can not climb out of the shell. It is combination of the turtle's skeleton and skin I think. Let me look it up. Bones, skins and keratin. Keratin is like fingernail and claw material.
    Along with the turtle shell valentine sent me a leg bone. It is 6" long and looks to be from a sheep or a pig. It's a bit thick for a coyote or racoon. Yep pretty sure it is the uppermost rear leg bone. I remembered I was using a computer and had access to the net. Some people don't seem to realize that as they post a single item and are never seen again.
    Almost forgot to mention this is my intro to Halloween post.

      Happy Halloween early!! Nice collection of skulls and little crawling critters too. I found the pig/sheep? bone while hiking on one of the channel islands off Ventura's coast. And the turtle was collected and cleaned (eew) by someone else. They left it in our storage room at my apt. bldg. Like how it looks with your collection!
