Under the Skin 3: Something of the Rabbit about it…

As I walk round the reservoir I pick up all sorts of odds and ends and am always very excited when I find bones. I found this flat single bone with tiny teeth some time ago.  It was with a small cache of other bones at the base of a favourite willow tree.

Initially I was not sure what animal it belonged to, but there was something rabbity about it. So I am guessing it is a rabbit’s jaw. It looks more like a rather curious 2 dimensional foot
