The strangest thing we saw all day, looked very intentional and set up.. We left it alone too.
Day 10: Weirdest find?
^^ this. Still doesn’t look like an accident to us!
We also found this unknown, but definitely not NY-native- jaw bone that day too. Jess still says it looks like it came from someone’s (pork) dinner!
I’m thinking young goat mandible? Obviously goats aren’t popular in NY but it’s too small even for a calf jaw and too thin for a pig.
Feel free to weigh in anyone! It’s so hard to find decent ref pictures online but my best guess would be goat!
That’s an interesting idea! I mean, it was found on the beach so I guess it could have washed up from anywhere. It is super thin and comparing pig and goat jaws on google just now, I really think you’re right!
Thanks so much for helping us with this almost year old mystery :)
