  1. A few years back while documenting a skeletal collection in a museum, I found a small plastic phial with about a dozen of these, all from weasels. The weird thing is, I never found the rest of the skeleton for them. So someone had just collected this specific bone (those who have ID’d it will know why this amuses me).

    I had a good 10 minutes imagining the local weasel community developing some child-managing cautionary tale centred around the *****-snatcher, that would come get little boy weasels that misbehaved. Amused me anyway.
