Thanks for adding this spotting to the mission Joshua! Welcome and great find!

I came across this skeleton while I was mushroom hunting, it was really cool because almost all of the skeleton was there, it was like he just laid down and died.

That's interesting. There was a porcupine killed in the road I walk on. I stopped and examined it, and was quite fascinated by its hair and quill structure. The quills are quite well hidden below longer hair. Neither the racoon or the porcupine are animals that we can examine up close alive in the wild.

Thanks I added it :)
