Friday mystery object #425

One of the things I get asked to identify a lot in my job are bits of bone that people have found on the beach. I’ve decided to give you an idea of what that’s often like, with this small section from a skull as this week’s mystery object:

I hope you have some fun figuring out what this bone belongs to – I usually find it to be quite a rewarding experience.

As ever you can pop your thoughts in the comments box below. Enjoy!
