It’s Friday and that means it’s time for my 18th mystery object. This week I have picked a skull (I can hear the groans already), but it’s a cute one and when I asked Melissa (who is not a biologist) what it is she got it in three guesses. I asked her how she worked it out and her reply was “I thought about it and it worked”, which speaks volumes about the principles behind identification methods.
So, I invite you to think about this and see if you too can make it work:
So, what is it? Answers in the comments section below – I’ll also do my best to respond to any questions, but tomorrow is a busy day for me, so I might not get much opportunity. Remember – think about it and it might just work.
P.S. if you get it early on I might turn your answer white to give others a chance of working it out for themselves.
