Pile of raccoon bones, probably from a younger one. By the looks of the moss and fallen teeth, they've been there awhile.
Under some trees near a lake, same park where I found the tilly bones.
I was lead to these bones by two vultures, which was a bit bizarre to me. There was no way they just finished making a meal of the raccoon, the green discoloration implies moss has grown on them, and the teeth everywhere suggests anything holding them into place has completely rotted away, and I couldn't find the actual cranium. Makes me wonder if vultures just develop a liking for bones and where just handing around them almost affectionately. Maybe they were remembering a delicious past meal, maybe they're like me and just delighted by skeletal remains.
