Ok, Today was my last day on necropsy duty. A 16 year old cow with horns came in and there was a request from one of the clinicans that she wanted the skull. So I volunteers to....well for lack of a better word....scalp it. Btw, what a great work out for your arms. Anyway I wondered how they would get the rest of the "meat" off of the skull so that it would be nice and clean for mounting. What they do is put it in a vat of rumen juice and water for 4 months and let the bacteria eat away all of the non-bone material. THought that was kind of interesting.
