Re: RE: skull cleaning

Museum preparation involves boiling the bones until all flesh, etc is
gone. I had a student who froze all his specimens first - removed a lot
of the debris while frozen and then did the boiling out process. I can
tell you from experience that leaving bones out through a Wyoming winter
will do all this for you.
