so when i got this there was still alot of coyote attached to the skull. i put it in a bucket with creek water so there would be lots of bugs to hang out with the head. fast foreward a few months and i dumped it out and rinsed it and am boiling it outside in the fire pit. once its all nice and clean and i have time i will whiten it up with hydrogen peroxide. its really nice. all the teeth are intact. the jaw split in two but its got all the teeth also.
