Catfish skulls about to be rebuilt. There’s a complete, smaller one there that I cleaned and rebuilt a while back. Used it for reference.

Sackful of catfish bones.
There are two skulls and skeletons here from fish that were around two feet long. A pond across the road “turned over” last summer and killed all of the big catfish in it. I managed to drag out three of the largest ones before other scavengers got to them. Still cleaning the biggest fish. He was around three feet long. 
Not sure if I’ll articulate both of these skeletons but I’ll definitely rebuild the skulls some time soon.

Here’s my little knife I made out of that scrap of bone I found at the creek last weekend. Most likely a piece of cow leg bone. Wrapped it with some scraps of leather and filed one end into a point. Sits really nicely in my hand. Just a silly little piece I did for fun. :)
