Dog? Human? Dinosaur?

We found this in our front yard today (my man hand in pic is for size reference):


Any guesses as to what this came from and why it would be in my yard?

Another view:


And, yes- I owe y'all a reunion post, but as I am recovering from last night when I drank waaaaayyyyy too much with this lady (YAY!!!!), it will have to wait until later/tomorrow, when my head isn't so hurty and I've exited my shame spiral.

I am going to guess Velociraptor.

kat said...

oh, that's MY jawbone! Please mail it to me so I can eat solid food again.

Human sacrifice at the reunion?

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

Sweet lord your hand is huge.

Some Guy said...

Squirrel?

WendyB said...

How do I know that isn't a midget hand in the picture, making some teeny-tiny jawbone look bigger?

Lockwood said...

I think it's probably a deer, dear. Probably not something the cat dragged home, but maybe something a neighborhood dog was dragging around.

Luisa Perkins said...

Deer. I hope.

Jacquie said...

Looks like bad human teeth to me, in a monkey jaw. Your hands are freakishly large, yet surprisingly clean. Now, get off the shame spiral and reclaim the throne of WHISKEYMARIE.

Madre de Dios, Ha sacrificado mi Llama !!
Plus, What ? Are you an NFL Quarterback ? Frightening Big Paws !

Keith said...

A little grinding down here and there and I could probably find you a buyer for that jawbone to help clean out some of those cheesy ear wax problems that seem to be getting more common these days.

Bubs said...

That's the jawbone of an ass. Hang on to that, it'll kill thousands if wielded correctly.

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

Hmmm...I'm not sure, but I'm going to venture to say....alligator?

Bill Hipps said...

How much did you drink? You haven't started getting bored cooking traditional protein sources have you? I am personally staying away from your stock pot for the immediate future.

Targa said...

I don't know, but why are there two yellow sneakers and one shoeless big-toe foot in that pic? Is there some other mystery you need to clarify for us?

:)

Jon said...

Hmmmm... seeing as though you live in MN, I'm going to guess Abmominable Snowman. Or possibly Kirby Puckett.

Fancy Schmancy said...

Bubs must be pretty ferocious bringing down something with a jawbone that size!

Dr Zibbs said...

Oh my God!

That's a bigfoot jaw!

John said...

Great White.

Sean in NOLA said...

It is White tail deer or in latin Odocoileus virginianus. So overtrained. No venison out of this? have fun

Stacey said...

Definitely a unicorn jawbone. I'd know it anywhere

I can't wait to hear about hanging with Lollie!!

ps said...

omg. i miss you. i think that belongs to a velociraptor. common in minnesota. xoxo

Gwen said...

Sorry! I was camping in your back yard last weekend and grilled up some crocodiles.

i am playing outside said...

polar bear. without a doubt. but a red one. very rare.

Student/Teacher said...

That looks like the spine from a raccoon or maybe a possum that had been chewed on by a dog.


But what do I know, I'm no scientist.

Renaissance Woman said...

I don't know...maybe Snufalufagus!

T.J. said...

Pretty sure it's a panda...

Do you have euctalyptus trees around your house?

i've recently started watching Castle, after years of being a lawandorder (one word) freak, and a brief foray into "CSI : name that city". why is this relevant, you ask?

because castle would tell you that because he is a best-selling novelist it is a "dog-asaurus", just to get you slightly annoyed, then he would smile wryly, and help you solve the real murder, while occasionally brushing up against you unnecessarily.

i tell you this because i am slightly horny and sitting in a cubicle. that, and apparently my mind is wandering, big time.

For some reason my eyes did not register that the third picture was a table and I thought it was a grill (hey, it's the 4th and I've had a few alcoholic beverages). I thought, "OMG! They're grilling it!" And then, whew! sanity returned.
