Quick progress on the new bones

I was too excited to not check on those deer scapulae, and they seem to be cleaning up about as easily as I’d hoped!

After a bit of scraping and brushing, I was able to remove most of the organic matter left on the bones, but there’s still some stubborn connective tissue that probably won’t come off without another couple of stints in the maceration bath. Still, I was able to get these bones mostly clean in just one soak, so I should be able to begin working on the deer bones I found in Arizona sometime during this upcoming week… can’t wait to get started on those!
