Graveyard in the Forest

Since over a year I'm fighting an illness. My leg was suddenly swollen and no doctor could say what it causes, so I was in a state of pain und visited many doctors and hospitals. There was no chance for me to go for some bone hunt but now, after a year and some treatment later, I was able to visit my beloved mountain forest again! I sure was looking for skulls - and found much more. Follow me under the cut!

The white Bear



Actually I have already written about my polar bear skull but a lot of older blog entries lost their photos so I rewrite it again. Someone over Twitter was curious about that skull anyway ;)
Well, at first I dond't want to buy a polar bear skull - it just happend! Years ago I saw a picture of a huge polar bear skull next to an ordinary human skull - it was an amazing size comparison. I sent that picture to a Canadian who sold arctic animal parts and asked him, if he had such a big polar bear skulls as well...
More of the story and a lot of pictures under the cut!

Life of Psy


Okey, I admit it, the title of this entry is a bad adaption of the movie "Life of Pi", especially when there's no tiger involved. But another big cat! YAY! A big dream came true and I want to share some photos of it. Please, have a closer look under the cut!

Fossil Hunt 2.0


Today I decided spontaneous to visit the stone pit "Schümel" in Holderbank, Aargau. It has been a while since I was there the last time, I think it was in 2016 or so. It was my very first fossil hunt then and I had to learn how to look after fossils and where they are to find. Today it was much easier, because I knew exactly where I had to look. And I was very lucky and found some nice pieces! Read more under the cut!

A rainy Day outdoors


I'm not the one you will see outdoors when it's raining, but sometimes you should also go for adventures when the weather is wet. It was still a warm summer day and with good clothes rain is no problem at all. And you will see, there's another world when everything is wet. Strange animals come out of their hides and the air smells so good! Let me show you what I explored.

Under the Water - again!


Had the chance to get under water again. At the same place, because there are always some perches around. Perches in all sizes! And they aren't that shy at all, are used to swimming people. That makes it easy for me to get used to my underwater camera. The water was clear and the sun shone bright - perfect conditions! More pictures under the cut!

Unboxing a Skull


Hello fellow bone collectors, what's up? I got a very nice box with an even nicer content!
A friend of mine spent her holidays in Greece and went there to a vulture safari. She saw these magnificent birds flying and near a nest she found... a body! She picked the most important part, the skull, up and brought it to me. Wanna see what managed two security checks at airports and landed in this snugly green box? Check it out under the cut!
