Look what I found...

Those empty eye sockets staring back at you belong to an American Mink (Neovison vison).  The skull was almost perfectly clean, but has a little lingering smell.  It is now resting on my desk in a jar of borax (sodium tetraborate decahydrate) to get rid of the smell.  In the fall it will be used in my Michigan Mammals program.
